You cant see it in the pics but there is 1 1/4 in. pvc that connects the two cones, I plan on using a primary as in the Don Smith device to power the coils, well actually two primary's pulsed out of phase, wound bifilar, one winding shorted.
I plan to also use permanent magnets in my core, I hope to make the system versatile so I can change it up easily, Im a very slow builder but I'll get there.
