Re: Home-brew Capacitors

Hi all,

I have some 500pF 30KV "doorknob" caps. Does anyone have experience with how
well this type holds up in TC use? I will be using a 15KV-at-120mA NST setup.
Should I consider using them in a series/paralell configuration of 16 caps to
get a .02uF, 60KV rating. At ~$10 a piece I would prefer to use just a
arrangement to keep the cost down.

Any recommendations from you experts out there??
