You're right, it is hard to tell with the home made cap. I'm
getting some MMC caps from Dr. Resonance (thanks again). While the shoebox
caps don't make my TC work, there still cool and fun to play with,
especially if you tell somebody that they are bongo drums.:) They'll be in
for a shock:) Also they make rather impressive arcs if put in parallel.
And yes, it is out of tune. My Electronics teacher and I hooked
it up to an o-scope with a function generator like Scopeboy did in his
notes and determined that resonant frequency was about 833Hz.
Does anybody know if a doorknob would make a good torpid? Because
that's what I'm using now.

I think it is out of tune since that what this problem usually is. With
your caps, it is really hard to know what the frequencies are to tune it
too. I think you need to get hold of MMC caps...

I've got a TC but I havn't been able to tune it to resonant frequency yet
due to lack of real capacitors. I've been using homade capacitors made
out of plastic shoeboxes and aluminum foil. The TC hasn't done anything
I was wondering if the TC should be doing anything before it reaches
resonant frequency, or if I have another problem with it.
