I've been told that doorknob caps are great as far as capacity goes and
aren't too leaky... I ran across a bunch of 30kv .000461mf caps that are
supposedly doorknobs... But they are ceramic cylinders with contacts on
axis of the cylinder on either end.  I thought doorknob caps were glass.
Obviously I'd be using these for a small coil.... Think they're a good
idea?  If anyone's interested, I might be able to get some of them; they
were a dollar or two each...
