Good evening everyone. New to the forums. So lets start this off I am looking for info on a HV project, I am looking to build a violet wand. I have this image in my head of the project and I'm looking to see if it makes sence. Or is it just making sence in my head lol. Here goes I want to take a motorcycle ignition coil as a HV power supply. The coil is going to put out about 20-30kv I'm going to use a light dimmer of 600watt and a CAP of the right specs to fire this said coil. Next the coil will be attached to a primary coil of 10 turns of at least 16-18 guage wire. I will make a secondary coil of 22-26 or smaller gauge with around 900-1000 turns to jump the ignition coils voltage from 20-30kv to hopefully over 50kv in essence I'm building a small Tesla coil with out a spark gap if I'm correct. The issues I'm thinking I might have are, I'm not sure how to adjust the volts coming off the secondary HV coil. I was thinking that the light dimmer if adjusted lower will limit the voltage coming out of the ignition coil, while limiting that voltage it should limit the voltage going to the primary if the built coil and in turn making the secondary coil lower voltage.... If i am not correct can anyone help with my thinking lol. Also I will be hooking secondary HV coil to a adapter so that I can hook up different tools for the violet wand. I know one endnof that coil gets hooked to this adapted but inam not sure where the other lower end of this coil will be hooked up to. And I want to be safe from mains 120v so also if anyone can tell me or show me how to keep the secondary HV coil safe from mains. I only want the HV low current voltage to touch the skin. Sorry for the rambling and if anyone needs clarity on what I am doing please just ask and thanks for any and all help.
