Make a Tesla Coil (from a kit)
Building an uninspiring kit!!
Watch a quick video where I embark of the epic project of building a 'Musical' Tesla coil kit.
I had high hopes for this kit - but although easy to build it took a bit of research to work out how the coils were wired up. I think it also needs a bit of power so my usual .5A bench power supply was not up to the job.
I never did get the 'musical' aspect of this working.
Here is a video of the build:
Lessons would be that the multi wind coil only connects to one end of the board - and it uses the outside hole (the hole at the edge of the PCB which is not inside the circle of the coil shown in white on the PCB. )
Search on eBay for a Electronic Production Tesla Coil Kit Plasma Music Loudspeaker Kit
Hopefully you may get one with instructions, and indeed I may have had better results if I had them.
Also apologies for the lack of updates lately - life has got in the way and the cave has been so very very cold over winter... Too cold for builds..
