Thomas Burton Kinraide Reproduction!
29. June 2008
- 81 Years Today Thomas Burton Kinraide died -
We decided to wind a Kinraide Coil as a tribute. It was an all-day affair,
and well worth the effort.
Endless thanks to Frank Jones who had the special triple silk-covered wire custom made!

Resolution Phantom Streamers...
Even these are reduced from their original size, but I can't see making them
any smaller when there is such wonderful details!
Streamers" Produced with "Cyclone Plus" Tesla Coil -
A first attempt at photographing these unusual electric phenomena!
Photos taken by Ciprian Timbal
4 second exposures (on average) were used to try and capture the "Phantom Streamers"...
Finally some success after years of failed attempts. The 2" ball terminal was photographed
producing Phantom Streamers extending in excess of 11" in all directions from the terminal.
Only the sections closest to the sphere could be captured, but this is a successful beginning.
The plume like details of the streamers are difficult to capture - they give off but little light,
and are fast-moving, making them next to impossible to photograph with methods other than
direct-contact prints on film. Cip did a wonderful job on these.
Thomas Burton Kinraide research continues!
