Hi Glen,


We always have a few "extra" turns on the primary just in case. So if your coil will tune at 10 turns then 13 total turns will be fine.

There is no special frequency to worry about. If it were over say above 400 or 500kHz then things might get odd and it is hard to get below say 70Khz without the coil being really big. But that range covers about 98% of all Tesla coils and they all work fine. The coils will tune to what ever frequency it turns out as and that is fine.

Everything sounds perfect!!

Wooohooo......Got my primary and secondary in order (I hope). I had attempted to use JavaTC before but it looked confusing so I left it alone. I fiddled around with the numbers and came up with the following:

Resonance is 262.1Khz between primary and secondary.

Secondary is 4" x 23"  1215.47 turns of #26.

Primary is 10 turns at 1/4" spacing. (prolly use 13 or so)

Topload is 3x12 Toroid

I do have a question about Resonance....Is there a magic number that is optimal? I hear 200Khz thrown around alot so I stayed in that area.
