Making and building to learn how stuff works and teach others so we can all make better things for a better world

Just about finished this, there are always hurdles to get past.
These looked way to interesting so I thought I'd try building one. It works but I'm still learning how not to crash.
This began as a demonstration project for my daughter - built a small Van De Graff first but wanted bigger sparks. I expected that it would only take a few weeks to make it but that turned into about 4 months (and I'm still building more coils)
I started this about a year after building my CNC machine and leveraged its capabilities to help me in fabricating the parts I needed.
This was an ambitious early project that I build to help me in making other projects. I've continued to update it with software, firmware and hardware upgrades
