Re: tesla coil powered anti gravity lifter

HBi Ben,

Check our "sister list " <mailto:hvlist@xxxxxxxxxx>hvlist@xxxxxxxxxx for more info on lifters than you can imagine. Of course, it isn't really antigravity any more than a hot air balloon is, but there's lots of good how-to info on making HV-DC lifters.

Anyone who has played around with high voltage has probably seen an
anti gravity lifter such as the one described
Having finished my most recent coil I was looking for another project
to work on and started researching a lifter. The lifter is easy
enough to make but I didn't have the 25+kv DC power supply to lift
one. What I did have was a tesla coil. I have to say that I never
really expected this to work because a tesla coil produces AC unless
I'm terribly mistaken. I built the lifter based roughly on the
instructions from the website. I ran 26 gauge magnet wire from the
discharge terminal of my relatively small tesla coil and I ran the
ground wire to ground. I powered the coil up and got some sparks and
corona from the lifter but no flight. As far as I can tell a tesla
coil can't power a lifter. I'm curious though if anyone else has
tried this with different results.
