  • Tesla Coils

    Hummm... 50,000Volt Tesla coils by the second pool? Sounds safe to me.

    Who's got a spare Tesla Coil layin around and wants to bring it to Vegas?

      This has inspired me to submit another DC13 slogan entry.

            Fairly dangerous. It's arcing across the secondaries of high-voltage transformer, (like a TV flyback or a neon power source) running off an AC source. From my research a typical one is about 50kV. It's easy enough to make one, but I'd keep people back from it while operating it. Google "Jabob's Ladder" and you'll find quite a few references for making your own.

                We were playing scrabble the other night with some friends...I actually got the word teslacoil~

                Have you seen the guy who built a Tesla Coil from parts he found in trashcans?

                    Saw a microwave on the side of the freeway that looked like it flew off a trailer and busted off the door.

                    Got me thinking about what I could do with the magnatron....

                      If I had a nickle for every time someone offered me ten cents to keep my two cents to myself... I would be a rich man.

                          Electron, Kystrons, and capacitors...Oh My.

                          I wounder is you could use a TWT as a 802.11 mitter? Thorn, what ya think?

                            In theory (assuming the right frequency range), sure. Practicality wise, you'd probaby just be better off using it as an inline amp. The input would have to take the 15-200wM output of a given 802.11 card, but it's probably easier than trying to bypass the RF final on a card.

                            The other thing is, to remember to keep it within Part 97 limits. We are talking P.97 here aren't we? Anything use of a TWT is probably WAY past Part 15.

                              Oh come on, that thing is a puny 1kW at most!

                              What you really need is a Raytheon 2J56A, a 50kW magnetron designed for RADAR... that'll fry some shit, like everyone's WiFi cards...
