By the way, you may get a lot more than 100 pulses per second depending on how your gap is adjusted and quenched.

How does that work?  I thought a static gap tied the firing rate to the AC mains cycle (100pps for 50Hz, 120pps for 60Hz).  I figured the only way to change firing rate was with a variable speed RSG.  I'd do almost anything to avoid building the dreaded RSG!  Please clue me in.
