This classic, 21 page, Tesla coil construction manual
uses the "cook book" approach to coil construction. Choosing
to keep the mathematics to a minimum, Trinkaus instead to focuses on
various options for the mechanical construction of individual oscillator
components. Also mentioned are some of the hazards that can be
associated with devices of this type. Included is a circuit diagram for
a vacuum tube Tesla coil, plus information on some of the applications
for which these transformers were originally designed.
