Tesla coil – internal arcing of secondary

by Stephen Hobley on July 31, 2008

Well, last night I found out why our Tesla coil isn’t delivering the performance I would expect. I opened up the secondary coil and found carbon scoring on the inside of the coil. Looks like the coil has been discharging internally.

We need to remove the metal bolt at the top and find a way to use a nylon one.
