Re: Machinist wanted for tungsten finned spark gaps (links to pictures)
Hello Dr. Resonance,
Well, I've heard on different occasions that single gaps sell for around
$50. I made several medical-coil repros with 6 and 12 gaps in series, and
that would get expensive for a single machine at that price!
I just /really/ like the collet-tungsten bar stock gap approach. It really
makes a spark gap that NEVER dies. The bar stock is simply replaced with a
new "slug". Besides, it's fun to make your own!
A 6 series gaps cost me about $75 each to make, but the time was unreal --
it took 3 days of solid work involved manually with all of the little
lathe/milling operations, whereas on a CNC turning center it could be done
"in a flash"...
Like wall-mount Tesla Coils, it's a Behary original - a bit over the top,
but then again they fit in well in a house filled with arc lamps and quack
