Tesla Coil Builder's Guide to the Colorado Springs Notes of Nikola Tesla
by Richard Hull
As an historical guide to Tesla's work as described
in the Colorado Springs Notes this book is without equal. The
author's day-by-day analysis will be of great assistance reader of this
sometimes puzzling volume. Written especially for the Tesla coil
builder, The Guide shows the evolution of the magnifier system by
comparing the original pioneering work with Mr. Hull's rediscovery of
Tesla's nearly forgotten design principles. With this book, you will be
carried back to the high Colorado plateaus and virtually look over the
good doctor's shoulder as he performs his pioneering experiments. Also
included are 43 original photos of contemporary coils and equipment. If
you are interested in obtaining superior performance and efficiency from
your next Tesla oscillator, this book is a must read.
Video Tapes! - Fusor Video Tapes! - High Energy Amateur Science!
Coil Builders of Richmond (TCBOR) was formed in 1988 and from 1989 until
1999 we issued 2 hour video reports of our researches and progress in
the art of construction and theory regarding Tesla coils. These tapes
are time specific and follow our activities over a month or two. There
are a total of 60 two hour VHS video report tapes. We have also produced
a number of 2 hour VHS tapes focusing on specific topics and theory in
our Educational series video tapes.
Our tapes are all VHS, U.S., NTSC format, standard tapes. We are sorry,
but we do not offer PAL format tapes based on the European standards.
All tapes are sent via priority mail within the US. The prices for our
Tesla Coil video report tapes are $20.00 each, postpaid, with
substantial discounts for more than one tape purchased at a time. The
special Educational series tapes are $25.00 each postpaid with no bulk
We have a complete index and catalog of all tapes with each segment on
all tapes explained in a small paragraph of text. This catalog also
contains a full page description for each of the special Educational
series of video tapes.
You can obtain a TCBOR tape index/catalog by sending $3.00 to the
address at the bottom of this page. You may deduct the $3.00 from your
first order, thus, making the catalog, in effect, free.
In 2000 the TCBOR became the High Energy Amateur Science Group. We are
the same local group meeting here in Richmond, monthly. We still do
limited work with Tesla coils, but also have vastly expanded our
coverage in a new series of video reports on High Energy Amateur
Science. We have just issued tape #1 of this series in August 2000. We
also have three, two hour, HEAS Educational series tapes available at
Two of these tapes are the now well known, "Fusor" video
tapes. The first is entitled "Fusor - An Introduction". This
covers the basics of the fusor, some history, some theory, and a bit of
construction info on assembling a demo fusor. The second tape is
entitled "Fusor - Doing Fusion - Tips and Techniques". This
latest tape shows an actual neutron producing fusor in operation. We
talk about neutron counting, our method of construction, and more. A
third tape on Radiation is also available. All HEAS tapes are $25.00
with discounts available on multi-tape purchases.
As there are only 4 HEAS tapes currently available, I can forward the
four pages in the HEAS index/catalog in an envelope to you. Just send a
full size, 8.5", letter width, SASE with 55 cents in postage stamps
on it to me at the address below and I will forward those pages to you.
Note** If you are ordering the Tesla catalog (above) and want the HEAS
material as well, You MUST mention that and I will throw it in the
envelope with your Tesla coil index/catalog at no charge. The HEAS
material is not part of the Tesla catalog, normally.
