Well, I put the resistors in my protection circuit yesterday. Had two 
3000 ohm 25W resistors in parallel on both legs (1.5k 50W on each side). 
I ran the coil at low power for a few seconds. The resistors seemed very 
hot. I ran it again at 2/3 power and after about 3 seconds two of the 
resistors blew up. Yup, shattered to peices(EMS). Maybee these werent 
very good resistors (i.e. self inductance) or maybe I forgot to mention 
in my original post the power levels I was using. I had 3 12kV 60mA 
NST's, and 2 12kV 30mA NST's. Maybee this is too much power for 50
