Doesn't someone who works for (maybe the owner) IU subscribe to the list? I remember seeing it in someone's signature. Perhaps he could shed some light on the subject. or not.....

When I was a first getting into tesla coils I bought some plans for a small coil from them. They were not very informative and probably would'nt produce very long sparks.

And it's unlikely that someone is going to complain to the Federal
Trade Commission for false advertising.. They probably also have
"fine print" disclaimers somewhere.
