I use a glass cap on my small coil...

20 12"x12" Heavy AI foil plates
22 16"x16" .25" thick glass dielectric plates
all in a 18"sq. tub of el cheapo motor oil (Thrifty Drug Store)

I charge this with 9kV -at- 400 milliamps and it works just fine for what 
it is. Heavy, messy, inefficient, etc....  ...but cheap...
