I have built about 100 or more different coil systems in the last 12 years from 10 watts to 13,000 watts of input power. I am afraid I have never noted one single instance of anything unusual involved with their operation. They do produce a prodigious DC electrostatic force which one would not normally expect from a high frequency AC device.

I could not imagine what might have caused your coil to act as it did.

Thanks for the kind words regarding the video tapes.
