Eh!! what are u saying...!R!f@@ Was not your brain fried then you tried to watch a an unseemly movie. Using a dodgy headset connection to the TV. I remember you told us about that storry
I'm dead serious too. I'd be happy to help. I've been wanting to build an audio-modulated solid state tesla coil for a long time, just never had the time or money. Logistics could be a bit of a problem, though. I'm over in the U.S. If you can work out some of these issues, I'm in!DOES ANY OF YOU HAVE ANY IDEA ON HOW I SHOULD BEGIN !!
I AM DEAD SERIOUS...If u must know.
1: The shiny thing is called a topload. It can be a sphere, torus, or anything in between. It is crucial, though, that it doesn't have any sharp edges, or else it will spray corona (no, I don't mean the beer) all over the place and you will not get the arcs you're looking for. The topload acts as a capacitor in parallel with the secondary coil (capacitance is between the topload and ground). The resonant frequency of the LC circuit of the secondary must be matched by the tank circuit to produce the arcs.OK..Me got to study the diagram...
Quite easy I must say.
Few questions though.
1. What is the silver shiny oval bowl looking thingy at the top ?
Where can I get or how can I make one ?
No body says much about what that thing is.
2. And does the arc just discharge into free air. I mean doesn't it need another terminal at the dome thingy. I do not understand how the corona arcing works from one terminal, or am I missing something ?
could work, but it might be a bit difficult to calculate it's capacitanceHow can I make the topload. May be I can use a stainless steal dish mum uses in the kitchen
