I was originally using 6 gaps each 25 mils in the RQ gap at 15KV. I think it
would have worked better if I had a stronger vacuum cleaner. With my new 30 9
mil gap I was using 16 of them at 15KV. I also had first notch quenching at
10 gaps with about 10.6 kV. The copper barley gets warm to the touch.
Sometime today or tomorrow I will increase the power and add a fan for air
flow through the primary gap. I built my 30 gaps in two rows like Terry did.
It makes for easy adjustment.
