Ran a simple experiment similar to the single push of
the "zap" button this evening. Used a variac to reduce primary
voltage on neon until spark rate was only two or three a second.
About 8" feeble sparks to grounded rod. Increased the primaryh
voltage to 120 and got heavy 16 to 18 inch white sparks.
