Sounds like you should be using a toroid. Why don't you want to
use one? Properly sized, a toroid can act to suppress the corona
leakage you speak of as well as increase your breakout voltage.

I want to know how a person can stop your secondary's coil last winding from
discharging. I have a small 1 inch diameter iron ball on top as a discharge
sphere. But at the last turn on my secondary there comes a 4 inch spark out
and that energy is lost and aren't going to my small sphere.

Anyone have Ideas on how to overcome this problem. I don't want to use a
large torroid to make an shielding effect.
