Re: cap design
How about a pair of .004 MFD 20 kV RF mica transmitting caps in parallel
for .008 MFD at 20 kV --- for $40. Sure beats spending a month building
your own --- and they will will last a long time. You would need a 12 kV
60 mA transformer to drive them or a pair of 30 ma NST's in parallel.
Contact me off-line if you are interested.
