No problem.

It sure beats the way I learned. That being the hard way...

Well since you have made it clear that you intend to pump some
power through this coil with a commercial cap charged with plenty
of KVA, the angle of inclination should be around 15-20 degrees.
This assumes a pretty decent spark gap system. You should go with
a slightly lower angle than a slightly steeper angle given your
intended application.

> BTW: Behr50 looks great on my acrylic coil.

Things have been picking up around here, so I have not yet coated
my newest winding (also on acrylic pipe). I will get out this
weekend hopefully and shop for this stuff.
