I'm building a Tesla Coil
I've started the initial research into building my own backyard Tesla Coils. The first will be a small but powerful one, capable of generating 400,000 VAC. The first coil will be technology demonstrator as well as something to cut my teeth on so to speak in lightning creation. I'm making a journal and keeping notes on the progress. I hope to begin construction of the prototype in two weeks or so. I've affectionately named it Cocijo - after a little known Meso-American thunder god.

If thats true excellent. Just be safe and careful.

I demand that you build me a Tesla Suit.


If you cannot, I will settle for a Stingray

Right now it's build the working coil without electrocuting myself in the process......

Well get to it so I can have my Tesla Suit of electrical death.

Or my boat with two tesla coils on it!

You might want to get a bank loan to cover the resulting power bill.

Good luck with your project CTBSD.

You are your own emphasis.

He's using a frequency generator for his primary power source, which is amplifying an input from the keyboard. I'm surprised he didn't put a grounded wire shield around the keyboard to protect it from ESD damage.

Note how the neon question mark on the left glows in the presence of the intense electric field generated by the Tesla Coil.
