Call this MSSTC for Mini Solid State Tesla Coil. This coil was a blast to make and pushes a number of modest nine inch sparks. Not mammoth and will not panic people, just inflict their minds to reflect on high voltage fun.  Wanted this coil to be small; furthermore, has a miniature variac to bring up the sparks gradually. About two months to build from spare parts. Scope picture are signals on the gates.  Secondary is 1483 feet of AWG31 magnet wire with a running frequency of 139.8 kHz. Primary is 4 turns of AWG10.
