Re: dielectric material

Hi All,
         on my coil I just smeared the inside turn of the pri with silicone 
sealant, being particullarly thorough around any area of voltage stress, like 
soldered joints or the end of the tubing.  This cured the rather spectacular 
pri-sec arcing  I got at first, but not before a neat ring of varnish had 
been burnt off the sec.
