Yes Gentlemen, it is Scott Myers working on those quantity discounts on
capacitors, as Glenn Cerny and I discussed. So far the work is going well.
Both Plastic Capacitors and Condenser Products are being considered. Right now,
I am working on this with both company's engineers. As you probably know
Richard, the standard cataloged ratings sound a bit on the short side of having
a high enough voltage rating. This is when considering a 14400 VAC transformer.
Both catalog 20KV pulse discharge capacitors. But as you know, the resonate
rise in a tank circuit with a 14400 VAC transformer can be well above this.
Right now, Plastic Capacitors looks the best. It seems to be a smaller company
and will entertain smaller orders, and possibly better discounts. They also
indicate that they will work with me if one blows and replace it. I belive that
this is an experimental area for them also. I know that this is also the source
of capacitors for Richard Hull. Overall, Plastic Capacitors seems to want to
work with me more. They have a good customer service attitude. I'm not ruling
out Condenser Products. I know that's where Richard Q. got his matching 45KV
pulse capacitors. I'll keep you posted.
