Hi Dan,


I think you can wind the secondary on one of those plastic baby bottles. There is that plastic ring toy by Fisher Price that goes from smaller to larger "toroids" that has the perfect forms for the top load. :-) Not much metal in baby stuff, but cribs used to have 1/4 inch steel slide rods to bend the primary from. If he can get used to cold formula, he won't be needing that microwave oven transformer for warming bottles :o) Probably plenty of plastics and foil stuff for the primary cap...

Even baby Tesla coil builders have to use what they have available :O)))

I wanted to name him Nikola, but Lenka just wouldn't go for it!
Now, to build his first tesla coil!
