Dick Aurandt's famous coil (he derived his inspiration for building this coil after seeing the world famous conical Tesla Coil at the Griffith Park Observatory in Los Angeles, CA, in the late 1930's). This coil was completely restored to origional condition and specifications after Dick Aurandt's passing.  With only 3 KVa A.C. input, this coil is capable of 6 foot arcs. The coil stands 5 feet high. The corona points and copper discharge ball on top were inspired by the coil Earl L. Ovington origionally built for Dr. Frederick Finch Strong, who in turn donated the two origional conical secondary coils to the Griffith Park Observatory.
