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).

ready to run in the garage. (13k, 8k)
A good view of Quantum One. (10k)
