Thanks for the reply. My non-existant high power system is being planned now.
That motor will help a lot.  What do you use for a cap in your system? I've
tossing the idea arround to try an MMC on this. If nothing else it's
cheaper then
a Maxwell and if I blow it up it's not such a big deal to replace. ;)

On the gaps, is there someplace that describes rotary breaks in more
detail? I've
never seen one in person, just pics online. I think I've got the main parts of
the design figgured out, but some detailed info would be great.
