Hi there..and thanks for responding to my post.
(I am aware how little I know, so bear with me..as I am learning :)   )
With those caps. I mentioned...
(the 2mfd. 10kv)
you mentioned that modification would be ness. for any Tesla Coil usage.
would this modification be more than just series-ing enough of these to get
the value down to a reasonable level (and thus increasing the voltage
rating), or is there design differances with these caps. that require
modification (thus not really being worth it for that type of usage)
(Granted..it would take quite a few of these)
