Hi Mitchell,

I think that a 12KV 60ma NST will be too much for a 3.25 in dia coil. I got 30 inch streamers off of a 12KV 30ma source with a 3.5x18 coil using 4 inch dryer duct for the toroid. Your variac will be just fine.

I have now collected the following items:
NST - 12,000 V     30 MA
White PVC Pipe - 3.25 inches
Enameled Copper Wire - 24 AWG
Soft Copper Tubing - .25 inch diameter
Aluminum Dryer Vent Duct - 3 and 5 inch
2 Large Aluminum Pie Pans
Variac - 120 V    8 A - if of any use

Is my 30 MA NST powerful enough for this size of coil? I think I get my
hands on a 60 MA NST cheaply if necessary.
