no its not electrostatic.
its same as if you put tin foil over a crt, a Tv set, and tap the dc there. its a lot of power from a tv tube so be careful..
your collecting the electron beam as it hits the crt.
this image is Tesla based. so follow the correct application,,
Tesla "These machines you see are only a few of the types I have developed, and as they stand here they are chiefly intended to replace the ordinary induction coil in its numerous uses."
i say this was Tesla s intention, how rude you did not see it first hand as i did?
i say Tesla loved the induction coil so much as to totally eliminate it all together is a kind of 5th generation devise..
I simply say if you follow these simple instructions you will have a working tesla devise.. that replaces the induction coil we so depend on..
your welcome.. I only ask that you show us the winding of the coils on as described in this you tube. cheers..https://www.teslashop.us/mall/more/351ntl.htm
i say just do it and this is 100 year old 5th generation induction circuits. Never before Used by modern man..https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gcfK0hfMKQI
