Hi all,
	I'd be greatful if someone could advise me if my saftey spacing in the
cap i'm designing are OK
	The cap is a glass cased stacked plate type. It will be used to operate
a conventional tesla coil with an 11Kv (RMS) primary. It constists of 2
series caps, each useing 40mils of polythene (as 4x10mil layers) as the
di-electric. the overlap I'm planning on useing is 1/2 inch in each of
the 2 caps.
	They will be either vacumed and back filled with oil, or capillery
filled over a week (at least).
