Caleb: Anyone who helps the handicapped play games and still has time to blow stuff up can't be all bad.  You sound like you're going to put the fun back into the workbench -- and lets face it, we all wanna have some fun, right?  Welcome!

Portable Tesla Coil

I like the Thor's Hammer with small Tesla Coil built-in Excellent. I'd like to try making a Tesla coil as a garden fixture in lieu of a water fountain. There's something comforting and calming about that zapping sound. One year at DESIGN West we had a DIY panel with editors and some industry people: that year's theme was LEDs. Maybe next years could involve a Tesla coil. Hmmm....probably not a good idea.

Good luck with the new job!  I'll have to start checking this site out more.


Yeah, no doubt some people are born engineers or at least have the ability/desire to explore and learn new things.  Some people I think are pushed into the field simply because they're good at math and/or science and it's generally a good job.  I'm not sure if that's good or bad.

And you know I've got a ton of stuff lurking in my garage, so be sure to hit me up if you need some ideas!

Welcome aboard, Caleb! I would definitely like to know more about what engineers do after work....more engineering-like stuff? Can't wait to find out!

Of course they do more engineering stuff! They can't stop solving problems, that's why they became engineers in the first place. There are no shortage of problems to be solved outside work as well.

I think we'll be talking a lot more about those things in your garage!

The battery powered ones like the one I had are relatively harmless. You could shock yourself with the arcs all day long without ill effect. Maybe we should do tiny tesla coils! That would wreak havoc on all the other electronics though.
