RQ> Never use points for spark gap.
Ok, I will build two cylinder spark gaps and run them in series.
RQ> Nahh, I would go with 1/4 or 3/8 spacing between primary turns.
Ok, I will go with 3/8.
RQ> For every bushing connected to a coil circuit you should place a ferrite
core RF choke in series.
I understand this is necessary to save the transformer (I lost one on my
first coil). Do you have any design details or construction ideas on these?
I have not seen any yet.
RQ> You need to look at another circuit.
I understand I need to disconnect the secondary from ground and add another
RF choke to the second transformer output. And add a safety gap. Other than
these two changes, I think our two circuits are the same.
How much space between the contacts and the center ground is recommended for
a 12kv transformer on the safety gap? About one half inch?
Thanks, Ed Sonderman
