>hi all
> can someone give me a ballpark figure for setting my safety spark gap. I
am using gene waldo's basic design (three bolts spaced 120 degrees apart)
but I am using a 2" ring. I'm not sure if I will have enough clearance. Max
is about 3/4".  I am using a 9kv 50mA neon, 23 awg 4.25"x21" secondary, 10
turns 3/8" cu primary, 0.0177uf flat plate cap, 2.4mh air core chokes, 1k
50watt series resistors 8"x4" toroid for now. many thanks for all the help
so far.
