Sounds very interesting tell us more What's your sec wire choice, total
turns, spacing
or TPI. Also what is your transformers out put voltage. Do you have a
toroid size in

I'm in North Carolina and will not get to see yours run but
I'm starting my 14" x 55" coil soon with a .12 uf -at- 60kv maxwell
and a 5kva -at- 14400 vac pig.

Good Luck keep us posted
