Build Nights - DIY Tesla Coils
Steve Siegel is always a hit with his Tesla Coil, Can Crusher, Non Newtonian creatures growing out of a speaker, and all of his other exhibits at science, technology and Maker shows. He is offering to show us how to build a DIY Tesla Coil of your own. If you have an old television that's collecting dust, bring it along to use for donor parts in your project. If you built a Desktop Power Supply from previous Build Nights, this is a great time to bring it along and power your project. These Tesla Coils are a smaller desktop version of the ones he takes to shows.
