    Tesla Coil - Kit & First Experiments (4K)

    Ordered a Tesla coil kit. Got it together and ran some experiments I thought you might find interesting.

    It's so tiny!

    Back when I was a wee lad, my father helped me put on a magic show in the back yard. I gave the normal patter while holding a normal 48" fluorescent tube. When I gave the command to LIGHT I held it out and it just happened to be next to a water pipe going up the outside of our house. The light flashed, then came on full. I moved it a little, then commanded OFF. Blink, off.

    Everyone was amazed.

    Nobody noticed my father had ducked down in the basement and was keying his large ham transmitter. They also didn't notice the wires leading from the base of his stealth antenna into the house.

    The clothes line was a stealth diapole.
