Re: Safety Gap
	Maybe someone else can comment on this, but I'd be afraid
of popping my transformers if I opened up the safety gap to any
spacing which would not "just break down" with no load connected.
A 3/4" spacing corresponds to an awful lot more than 15 kV!  That's
the way I have wrecked several transformers in the past, and for
some reason it took me quite a while to realize that with a capacitive
load the output voltage of the transformer could go up to much
more than the open circuit value! And I'm supposed to be an electrical
engineer.....  Anyhow, any other thoughts on safety gap settings?
