Hi Guys Smiley
An attempt at Art Deco/Past Futurist, with a new material Cheesy
It’s called Acrylic, you may not of heard of it. It comes out about the year 2000.
By that time, when something is made, people are surprised if it has copper or brass in it.

Not quite done this part. There’s another tinted disc to go on top when the solvent has cured.
The steampunk has yet to take place, mainly underneath.

Yes, I suppose it looks incomplete without the torus on top.
It wasn’t worth putting back on yet until the next disc is mounted atop the primary coil.

Have you seen MrConsciousFlesh about yet?

Thanks Guys Smiley
It’s operational with the driver section loosely assembled on a desk, and not bad for it’s size.
The finished driver section should be more striking... as inspired by past futurist drawings,
most non-metallic components are finished without any colour, and colours present are very Earthy.

What is the power supply?

It starts getting complicated there Cheesy
Overall, 4x 12V SLA batteries, each about half the size that would be in a small domestic UPS.

The Tesla transformer part can be driven with any of three taps of the first three batteries
(12, 24, or 36 Volts), and a digital circuit that switches DC solid state relays
between those taps has a battery of it’s own (the fourth SLA).

Hi Guys Smiley
This part almost done, then onto the enclosure for the driver section.

There’s a part I have that isn’t fitted yet. It’s an identical acrylic shape of the base plate,
to go underneath, so the aluminium ground plane looks like a silver band about the perimeter of the base.
Banding being one of the Art Deco characteristics.

Not really; the old plans that I had as a kid called for a brass ball on top.
