Safety guards for my Tesla coil project


New Member
I want to make a Tesla coil for my school project and because ı dont want to die ı need some kind of safety ı have something in my mind like grounded aliminium foil gloves or electric-taping every exposed wiring but need advices from experienced people.

grounded aliminium foil gloves
That sounds very dangerous.
What will happen if the high voltage of the tesla coil makes contact with some other part of your body, not the hand?

Just my humble opinion, but if you need to ask this question, you shouldn't make this as your project.
