Re: [TCML] New Tesla Coil

Yes, .5mm (not .05mm). And yes I did take the enamel into consideration (not doing so might cause quite a surprise during that last turn).
Gareth contacted me off list about the 0.5mm wire.

Good catch. Take care,

I would recommend .05mm bare wire size (minimum). This size requires a longer secondary for 1200 turns. So, 685.8mm in length and 152.4mm diameter for a nice h/d ratio (4.5). This will also lower the frequency from 600kHz down to 230kHz. This will raise Q and will better handle your 4 MOT system.

Bart, I surmise you meant .5mm bare wire, right?

Your calculation of 1200 x .5 = 685,8mm for the secondary height doesn't make sense unless you have taken the enamel thickness into account.

1200 x .5 = 600mm for the bare wire size.
