Hi all First light is here.

Just to let you all know that Dr B and my self got our coil
working this morning.With 14-16" discharges(WOW).
did have some problems with the primary arcing to the secondary so we 
scraped the fixed primary and built a free standing cone shape also
removed the toroid and replaced it with a spike and off she went....
The RQ gap and the salt water bottle caps all stood up well.

cheers Mick Tucknott (Love the smell of ozone)and Brian Lapage
