Nope. All of the good stuff, with the exception of one spark gap
project, was archived. I started keeping records about the time
interest my FIDO postings was taking off, and I stopped when
interest fell off. Now I post here of course. You should have
just about everything.

Well, my wire charts show that number #21 AWG copper magnet wire
has a diameter of about .0285 inches. = about .7239 inches, so
the size sounds ideal. If the coil form, and completed coil, are
both properly sealed and you fire with the proper discharger I
see no reason why it should not work fine. On bare wire coils the
double Formvar coated wire has visibly less corona losses.
... If all else fails... Throw another megavolt across it!
