My RSG - possible
after months of stealing everyone else's machine time and begging,
borrowing and scrounging materials off everyone in sight (particullarly those
with access to industrial machine shops - thanks mike) my 1120bps rsg is
ready to run. It does not use a sync motor so I can vary the break rate
almost infinitely, once I get another variac. At the moment the electrode
holders are a bit of a lash-up but by the time I take it to the winter
teslathon I should have lovely finned brass electrode holders with thoriated
tungsten electrodes mmmmmmm.......
The point of all this was .. no wait i can still remember .... that having
built this rather nice gap I now have to build a coil for it. I have decided
that it would be cool to do a maggie but wonder if there is anything
perculiar to high break rates that I should know about?
Also which primary form is better for the maggie driver - spiral or solenoid?
What should I use as the hook up between the secondary and tertiary?
How physically big should the system be if i am going to put about 5kVA into
How much tertiary Ctop should I use?
Thanks for all your past (and future) advice
