Are we really dealing with much higher peak currents?
So what is a tolerable Tesla coil peak current?


I have never drawn an arc from a Tesla coil to my hand, or with a metal rod in my hand, but I have drawn arcs to the metal contacts of a 48 inch fluourescent tube that I was holding in my hand (further down, on the glass). I noticed the glow in the tube stopped at my hand, but I felt nothing and had no symptoms later on.

I've seen videos of Jeff Behary taking arcs from some of his devices. Perhaps he would comment here.
