okayyyyyyy checking on what you have and to modify for what you want
try to get 1/4 " soft Cu tubing you will need a min of 7.5 turns with
an inside dia of 7" to start ( about 25 feet ) 1/4 " spacing tween tubes
keep the secondary the same
time for a new toriod buy some dryer ducting tubing aluminum of
course make it 4" x 11" (( 4" dia tubing by 11" outside dia)
new cap make or modify the existing one to ...... 5 plates Al with
the .047 dielectric ( this is a minimun for .004 uF ) the Al is 10 X 10
... try to make the dielectric 14X14 ...
spark gap try using a single gap with a vacuum pulling air thru a 2"
pvc tube attached to the vacuum gap width .25 - .5 " dont go any
further or else you will blow the cap...
OH yes make the primary an inclined primary 20 - 30 degrees (
this should get you 18 - 20 "
or elseeeeeeee get another NST and run it in paralell :)
