Lashing it together and first tests…

VTTC-firstlight-arc

First light

Thar she blows !! Not much, just 15mm, but oh so important !!

VTTC-firstlight-coil

Messy coils

Probably the worst primary and feedback coils ever wound ! It just goes to show how wildly you can flaunt the basic design concepts and still get sparks.

VTTC-firstlight-layout

Circuit layout

The birds nest ! A messy lash-up to get the ball rolling and find the weak spots in my design, stand well back ! The meters measure supply volts and current drawn.

VTTC-firstlight-tube

Hot stuff

Deep joy ! Happiness is a hot cathode !

VTTC-firstlight-psu

Power transformers

The two transformers, the right hand one is a 300w 24v supply for the heaters and on the left is the microwave oven transformer for the high voltage supply.
