Proper Grounding Environment/Placement

Postby snappawapa » Tue Feb 07, 2017 9:27 pm

Hello all,

I am rather new on the coil scene, and am not exactly sure of how to place the coil while in use.

I currently have a tiny tesla (still building/troubleshooting), and am planning on placing it directly on a very well grounded cookie sheet when in use.

Is this appropriate? Is the heat sync being placed directly on top the same surface that is being zapped (even if it is well grounded) okay?

Also, I have thought about building a faraday cage to go around this thing (for cases where space is a concern). Should I bother with this?

Thanks!

earth is earth, I've never had any issues setting the heatsink on a counterpoise.
