I realize that ... but his point is that there is a charge 'conveyer'
mechanism in both devices, that pushes charge up the column at
dq/dt  (a rate that is much faster with a damped intermittent
resonant tesla 'conveyer') and that both use a column that
essentially keeps the charge on the top load with what are in effect
equipotential rings.  ...

I'm afraid that the similarities are more poetic metaphor than science.
It's like saying that a horse is similar in operation to a tractor because
both can pull a wagon.
