Last evening I got an email from a guy in California (Paul) who says he is going to make a Model T Coil Tester (buzz box) based on what he had seen on my post on the Forum back in 2013.
He had saved the website for that particular post.
I consider his email to be a compliment. I considered my project a labor of love for anyone who loves Model Ts.

I replied back, Welcome to Synergistic Integration.
Synergistic Integration = Thinking outside of the box.
The gumption to take on a project like a test box is a sort of a Synergistic Integration, donít ya think?
I find this method works very well. After you adjust them on the buzz box do the best test. The best test is to try the coils one by one in a T which runs smoothly and if it continues to run smoothly, they will be fine. The car might run better if you adjust on a hand cranked coil tester or strobospark, but the buzz box works very well. I connect my buzz box to the car battery and adjust for 1.3 amps. Then I connect the clip to the magneto output of a running T and see if it is still 1.3 amps. and get a good spark. If so, I try in the car.
Works for me.
Eugene, I was the guy,but sorry I'm not from California. I have been there a few times,but reside in Vancouver Canada.
I'm looking forward to making a buzz box to see how well they work. A old fellow I met used one he made on some coils I have,but no where as good or as nice as the kind you made.
