I am currently building my first coil inspired by this list and an
by Malcolm Watts in "Electronics World + Wireless World" dated March 95
I have read many references in this list about failure of capacitors due
air bubbles. I am currently making a flat plate capacitor of 0.015uF.
using Polystyrene Sheet (80 mil thick), and sticking aluminium foil to
with insulating varnish.
Because I know I have air bubbles what can I
expect the failure mode to be? I expect the breakdown voltage to be
40Kv so should be ok with by 10KV 50ma Neon transformer.
Also are their any other coilers in the UK, I don't see much UK
