This is a cool project from the Volunteer Lab Rat website:
It’s time for me to present to you my Table Top Tesla Coil. I had my fair amount of concern while building this contraption, as everybody else on the net start their build with a Java based calculator. At first I didn’t think that a tesla coil mockup without the calculations would be a success but I proved myself wrong!
