Before you can make lightning you need the right tools

What do you get when you over engineer a simple yet tedious task? You get a Tesla Coil Winder like this one.

In the quest to create a Tesla coil, one of the tasks that must be completed is winding your secondary coil. This is a tedious process of wrapping magnet wire many hundreds of times around your secondary coil form. Trying of course to make sure the winding is straight, free of gaps, and overlaps. It's a job that didn't sound very fun, which is why I decided that when it came time to wind the secondary coil for Project Icarus, I would build a machine to do it for me.

Check out all the details over at the Tesla Coil Winder project page.
