I do my best Minde4000 to help and be clear in what I am saying.

Schematic seems correct.Spark gap to ground. I think in this situation frequency of NST must be harmonic of resonant circuit or it will damp oscillation in LC.

Mr. Smith says that you can get all the components in any shop, but he says that there are 2 that you cannot get everywhere.
The first ones are the capacitors used just after the NST. I've localized them.
The second ones are 4 high voltage diodes that are just after the L2 coil. Anyone knows any number indentification of those caps or where to get one like them?
Smith also used 2 high voltage diodes just with the yellow caps, that seem to be the same model as the mentioned above. I'm not sure about if the 6 are the same kind of diodes, but in the video he only says that the 4 mentioned are are the difference. Any information about all this?

What about those capacitors ? are they special ? In what sense ? I heard they were custom run.

hi Magnetos,

Here are two links on high voltage and diode / diode bridge and capacitor source:

a manufacturer:
http://www.deantechnology.com/pg_home/home.aspx

a distributor, selection is made on high voltage capacitors in descending order, starting from 16,000V, copy and paste the link below fully into your browser because the last part of the link below is truncated:
http://www.alliedelec.com/search/searchresults.aspx?dsNav=Ny:False,Ns:Voltage%2c+Rating|101|-1|,N:107-4294887054 

Surely there are other sources too, I did a small random search. 

The capacitor shown in the photo you uploded in the previous page:  .1uF  +/-10% 4000WVDC was manufactured in the 2nd week of 1977... this is what the last line shows: 7702 

rgds,  Gyula

I don't know if they've something special. The yellow caps are 4000 WVDC 0.1 uF each one (there are 2). I think they're made of mica (not sure).
About the high voltage diodes I've no information. But he says that you cannot buy them everywhere. Well, the video is from the 1990's, so maybe in that time you cannot buy them everywhere but now... who knows.
I don't know why he says that you cannot buy them everywhere. The caps are made by a company that build electronic components for the military (and other) industry.
This cap is rated the same as Don Smith's ones. http://www.apexelectronic.com/FC2-W-4A
but I don't know if they Smith's ones has some advantage or not.

What means WVDC? I'm used to see 4000 Volts DC but... WVDC? You know if the caps are special made?

Yes, the caps are of mica.

WVDC means Working DC Voltage,   see the very bottom of this link for explanation:
http://www.illinoiscapacitor.com/tech-center/glossary.aspx

I do not think these capacitors are special made.  Here is one of the better capacitor manufacturers, the Cornell Dubilier,  CDE for short,  This is their website:  http://www.cde.com/   with some  high voltage products: http://www.cde.com/catalog/hvolt/ 

They have a CMR series product (the first line on the yellow cap starts with CMR), see this:
http://www.cde.com/catalogs/CMR.pdf    You may get in contact with them whether they manufactured CMR 1A 402104K type back in 1977 and what they recommend nowadays....   but again, I do not think this cap is a special made one.

Don Smith had caps made at one of these vendors:
 
1. Custom Electronics - http://www.customelec.com/
2. Cornell Dubilier      - http://www.cde.com/
 
Good luck

I think this is last lecture of Don Smith Device concept.

I been reading Don Smith all over the place in the internet, but the one thing I cant find is a video of a working unit, not the ones that he shows, that are not connected to anything, but a unit that is connected and generating real electricity...

Can some one help and point to a video of a working unit.

Thanks.
TheStone.

Thanks for your post, but I thought that the Tariel's original device based on the Nikola Tesla fuelless generator...

Both use the same principle: Generate a high voltage  then step down through a resonant transformer.
The main difference is that Kapanadze loops (regeneration). Don Smith does not disclose.

Hi a.king21
I see, I been reading already  :) , do you have a good source of Kapanadse schematics and information, as I understand there is really not much on it.

Thanks.
