In fact, electrical currents have been used to stimulate bone growth. So why does a tolerable Tesla coil shock cause a problem?I have never had an intentional or accidental shock from anything larger than a 3 inch weak spark from my briefcase Tesla coil so I can't comment from experience.
Are we really dealing with much higher peak currents? So what is a tolerable Tesla coil peak current? Peter Tesladownunder.com-----Original Message----- From: lightningfor@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
