It seams that a heating coil should be 100% efficient.
That is if it does not produce any light, CEMF, or sound.
What do you think? I know they say nothing is 100%
i finally hooked up the 220v 15a 2 pole 3 wire outlet in to the panel in the garage and turned the switch on and the Jacobs ladder and nothing happened. :'( i don't have a meter to test where the problem is but i have a inductor meter thing and at first it looked like power was on H1 and H2 and still no spark then later on there was no power on any of the wires so i think the breaker is broken. so i hope its the breaker, and not the neon sign trany. we will have to see. but now thinking about it the inductor meter said there was power on the ladder rods so i hope the inductor meter thing is just not accurite. grrrrrrrrrrr i had the rods from 1" to 1/8" so i dont think the gap is the problem
i will have to had lil pilot lights to see if there is power before the tranny andget a real fluke meter and/or try new breaker
I have a device that creates 15,000V @ 60mA @ 40,000 Hz, the only bad thing is that the Prim. side is 220V but i did get it brand new really cheap . . .What should we do with it? besides the obvious and make a Jacobs Ladder
Is this community used much?
man james when are we going to build one of the beasts. also, i think i might be able to steal a whole crap load of copper wire. its like a full bucket and its heavy as crap. well ill try to jack it one of theses days real soon so we dont have to buy any. it will be way easyer and cheeper that way.
If I said "Gen 28.10-17)"
What comes to your mind?
I figured there needed to be a Tesla Coil Community so bang, here it is... feel free to spread the word.
