This is the really tricky part, as you want them to be as close as
possible. I wind my primary's directly over the driver coil. For my driver
that I used up to 15KV, I used about 5/8 inch of 30 mill LDPE sheeting over
the driver coil, from top to bottom, and then wound the primary directly
over that. I think this is ok for neon systems, but higher power, and you
may want more space and insulation. Remember, you want as high a coupling
you can get.
