I went to his site and found all sorts of good
info and links.
One of them was to his Tesla Coil page. I was amazed. I had to make one myself. He had a link called "easiest way" which I followed to someone else's site. The site gave instructions on how to use little more than a car starter, pop bottles, and wire to make a coil.
It worked! Not well, only making 4" sparks, but I was elated and hooked.
