Join the Columbia Basin Section for a presentation on the principles of Tesla Coils followed by a demonstration of them. Local engineer Jim Zimmerschied has been fascinated by Tesla Coils for years and has graciously agreed to give a presentation on them. He has long studied the coils and has built several. The presentation will cover the history of Tesla Coils, how they function, and then give a demonstration on them. Jim will demonstrate coils in three sizes: a small electronic coil that can play music, a small spark gap coil that produces 12 in. arcs and can light fluorescent tubes wirelessly, and a medium size coil that can produce 6–8 ft arcs. Space is limited, so please sign up as soon as possible. Please park on the street, or in the driveway if there is room.
