Re: Coil Launcher Parts

afarawayland, I'm glad to hear someone else is trying this one. Did you get it to work? I found all the parts, but I didn't get it to work -yet. I tried to assemble the circuit on a crappy protoboard from radio shack, which was a horrible mistake. It was very difficult to follow the layout without a...

Franklin97355, I don't think a bigger value on these caps would significantly increase the range but increasing the voltage or making another stage would.

44 views and not a single reply. I emailed the articles author about a week ago and I haven't heard anything.

I found the magnet wire but now i'm trying to find the 1000uF 1.5kV capacitors that are supposed to be used for c3 and c4. Is this maybe the wrong value? I can't find these anywhere.

Coil Launcher Parts

Where do I get the bobbin for the transformer and does anyone know a good source for the magnet wires?

Also, what constitutes high voltage wire? Can I just use some thick wire?

I'm gonna build this as a project for my physics class.
