Whirling Spinner
spinner

spinner spinner spinner

Place this 3-pronged spinner on top of your tesla coil (works on core & coil, solid state, and vacuum tesla coils alike) and watch the sparks shoot out of the tips of the spinner as it begins to turn. Since the electrons are mutually repelled from each other, this forces them to travel down the arms and be emitted at the pointed ends, causing this well-balanced rotor to spin at increasing speeds, eminating sparks as it goes.

Also includes parts for use on Van de Graaff generators (accumulating disk and offset wand) which causes a similar spin, but at reduced speed and minimal sparking from what tesla coils can produce.

A fun accessory for your BTC-series tesla coil!

Specialized Capacitors for High Power Tesla Coils
Capacitor

These specialized capacitors are made for Tesla coil applications where high frequency and high current operation is required.

Capacitors are constructed with a polypropylene dielectric being specially wound to reduce corona and have a high voltage standoff capability. Capacitors are also designed to withstand the multiple discharges of a rotary gap system of up to 600 breaks per minute with a suggested operating frequency of 30 kHz.

Capacitors are enclosed in a high impact PVC tubing and epoxy sealed. Terminations are via appropriate sized studs axially positioned. Our standard value is .05 ufd at 20 kvac (but others are available). This value provides an excellent combination when used with the readily available 14.4 kvac pole transformer in the 7 to 10 kva range. One capacitor will utilize one half this kva range while two in parallel with utilize the full rating and produce in excess of 10 foot discharges. (We use the .01u/10KVAC capacitor in our BTC30 tesla coil, and the .015u/12KVAC capacitor in our BTC40 tesla coil.)

DANGEROUS PRODUCT -- CAN CAUSE ELECTROCUTION IF IMPROPERLY HANDLED

Note: these non-GFCI transformers are NOT to be used with luminous tubes such as neon lighting. It is dangerous and illegal to do so.

We have purchased tooling for and now have our own current-limited transformers at 60 ma with 15000 or 9000 volt output. These units will have our name with logo on them and are only available through us. They are also available for volume purchasing.

These are brand new, factory-fresh transformers. They DO NOTcontain the bothersome ground fault interrupter that makes them difficult to use for TESLA coils and other scientific applications. Operates from 115 vac and are easily parallel connected for higher power operation. (For example, six of the 15KV/60MA units connected in this way can produce 15000 vac rms at 360 ma. This is enough power to make a large TESLA coil easily producing 10+ foot arcs.) May also be connected for 7500 volts at 120 ma (9KV/60MA provides 4500v at 120ma).

A secondary protection circuit schematic designed by DC Cox of Resonance Research is included and must be used for TESLA coil applications, to protect the high voltage secondary from high frequencies, current, and voltage transients. (See the PDF schematic here.)

All units are open circuit tested at 1.2 x 120 vac for six hours before shipping.

tesla coils plans parts kits Tesla Coil
Invented by Nikola Tesla back in 1891, the Testa coil can boost power from a wall socket or battery to millions of high-frequency volts. In this booklet, the only systematic treatment of the Tesla coil for the electrical nonexpert, you’ll find a wealth of information on one of the best-kept secrets of electric technology, plus all the facts you need to build a Tesla coil on any scale. How Tesla built it. How you can from off-the-shelf parts. What is a beer-bottle capacitor? A well tuned coil is harmless but can perform amazing tasks. A look at low-draw high-frequency lighting, ozone generation, electrotherapy, electrochemistry, radio transmitting. Also includes an introduction to the megapower Tesla coil called the magnifying transmitter. 26 illustrations.

We’ve thrown lots of sparks, but is that all Tesla had in mind? In this sequel to the classic, we venture into the utilitarian Tesla. Can Tesla coils do real work? Can they power an alternative fluorescent lighting? Build a “third generation” Testa coil and a Tesla lighting plant. Discover the magic of oil immersion, close coupling, and precise pulsing. Meet the new electronic neon technology. A look at the familiar hybrid-spark ignition-coil and flyback Tesla coils. Then a leap forward to the Tesla coil pulsed directly by solid state, where battery 12 volts can yield a clean usable output of 2000. The same circuitry can pulse 500 volts into a primary, yielding 100 times that. Can spark also deliver clean, stable outputs? Meet the Chaffee gap. 40 illustrations.

Our other classic. Many thousands sold. Here are the suppressed inventions of Nikola Tesla all in one place in clear English and in 42 illustrations. Tesla was famous at the turn of the century for inventing the alternating current system still in use today. But his later inventions, documented in some 30 U.S. patents between 1890 and 1921, have never been utilized as Tesla intended despite their obvious potential for advancing in fundamental ways the technology of modern civilization. Disk-turbine rotary engine, spark-gap oscillator, high-frequency electric transportation, the Tesla coil energy magnifier, high-frequency lighting, the magnifying transmitter, a radical high-power radio, wireless electric power, and the free- energy receiver. 42 illustrations.

In clear English, and a minimum of math, this booklet details Tesla’s radical radio technology. Early elemental radio devices, like Tesla’s and others shown here are fascinating because they remind us how powerful radio technologies can be so simple and accessible. Modern radio took a lot from Testa, but what did it ignore? Tesla’s high-voltage, sudden-pulse disturbances of low frequency conduct over distance as effectively as through copper wire. His wireless power works on the very same principles. Also, spark reconsidered, grounding rediscovered, low frequency revived, lament on solid stale, underground radio, license-free radio, the suppression of amateur radio, carrier current radio, radio-free energy. Who owns the ether? 66 illustrations.

By Nikola Tesla (1919), edited by Trinkaus. In Tesla's own words and in 20 illustrations, this is the inventor's final published statement on how radio, at the radical, really works. What is the true wireless? Tesla says the orthodox Hertzian radio we've been taught is a "fiction." He insists that the amount of energy that can be transmitted is "billions of times greater" than conventional radio would allow. Can we transmit electric power to our homes and workplaces without wires? Can the unsightly and fragile grid come down? Tesla says Yes. This article of 1919 has been completely reset and redesigned for clarity. Includes an introduction by Trinkaus, explanatory notes, and information sources. 21 illustrations.

By the U.S. Navy (1951), edited by Trinkaus. First came the vacuum tube, then the transistor, right? Not really. In between there is another lost entity. Electronics engineers of the 1950's believed the rugged little magnetic amplifier was going to replace the fragile vacuum tube in all its functions under abasic mag amp megacycle. Originating in the USA but adopted and developed by the Nazis for the V2 missile, the mag amp after WWII found a clique of boosters among US electronics engineers. This document, unusually passionate and well written for a military tech manual, is their promotional brochure. Evident today only in some motor-control and power-supply regulator applications, the mag amp not only can regulate but can magnify, modulate, switch, pulse-generate, invert, convert, multivibrate, phase shift, and multiply. Mag amps require zero maintenance, can be made indestructible and EMP-proof, and can handle up to 200,000 amperes. Modulate your Tesla coil with a mag amp. This booklet has been completely reset and redesigned for economy and readability. Also see: Magnetic Amplifiers Bibliography. 43 illustrations.

By the U.S. Navy (1951). A supplement to Magnetic Amplifiers. The zealous authors of Magnetic Amplifiers appended this exhaustive 500-entry compendium, which lends itself to separate publication. Most of the citations are of patents you can still easily access. There are also citations of scientific and engineering journal articles, of military documents, and of procedings of the Institutes of Electrical, Electronics and Radio Engineers. Entries range all the way from the year 624 BC to 1951. A must for further research into the lost technology of the magnetic amplifier.
