Let’s Build: Tiny Tesla Coil, Part 2

Sean and Norm continue on the build while Jeremy goes off-screen to troubleshoot the MIDI controller board. Without a working board, we won’t be able to play music and get the Tesla Coil working. Cross our fingers and hope it works out!

  1. I really hope they held off publishing until now because they have a solution to the issues!

    *crosses fingers we’ll see part 3 later today*

  2. Good news, thanks.

    My inner scientist says learning through failure is just as important as learning through results but my inner maker wins out and wants results damnit! 😀

  3. This may be a stupid question, But are you sure it is not just a VCP driver issue? When you plug the board in does it appear in the device manager? Even if you think you have the drivers installed sometimes it helps to go to device manager and do an uninstall of the driver and re install. Just food for thought and sorry if this has already been attempted. I would imagine if it was just a driver issue someone would have figured that out already.
