Kaizer DRSSTC III update #4 – First light

First light test and unfortunately under horrible conditions. We finished all the cabling and other small parts, bits and missing stuff in a days hectic work that lasted all night. So we missed the opportunity of testing in darkness.

There was no tuning performed, input was limited by a smaller 6A variac, it was broad day light, foggy and wet day, the coil was just pushed outside of the garage as no cables was long enough to get it away from the tree.

Sparks are about 60-70 cm and we killed the LED christmas light chain that was in the tree, it was unplugged before we started.
