Quantum Two
 

This is the second complete Tesla Coil I have built.  I should definitely mention all my friends who have also helped in the construction of this coil (and Quantum One).  Perhaps I will get a photograph of all of us, but until then I can just mention names: Craig Weirich, Chris Crumbliss, Joe Miller, Garrick Daft, and myself (Tristan Stewart).



Well, here it is! (9k)

I am sitting by the coil so you can see approximately how big the coil really is. (11k)

It's time for some sparks!
