What would be the best way to ask for advice regarding problems with my first Tesla Coil build? When I first tested it I was getting some arcing from the lower aspect of the secondary to the primary. I fixed the burnt insulation on the secondary, coated the secondary with Polyurethane and added Plexiglas sheeting on top of the primary. Now I am getting arcing on the top few inches of the secondary to itself.
You might be over coupled.. raise the whole secondary a few inches. What are you using as a ground plane under the coil? _______________________________________________ Tesla mailing list Tesla@xxxxxxxxxx http://www.pupman.com/mailman/listinfo/tesla
