Tesla List

Hi Everyone...

   I know this is a little off of the subject, but after reading through 
many coiler's HOWTO's and such, I got quite confused when one person said: 1 
millimeter = .001 inch, and another: 1 millimeter = .01 inch. I know for a 
fact that: 1 inch = 25.4 millimeters, which would mean: 1 millimeter = .039 
inches. A little different from what the others were sayin'. I have gotten 
very disgruntled from these documents.

   Ok, so starting fresh: What exactly is the math behind making cap.'s 
suitable for Tesla Coils? (Better yet, the spec's.)  More specifically 
rolled and plate cap.'s... Understanding that 1 inch = 25.4 millimeters. How 
many inches thick of a dielectric do I need for a coil about 10kVAC?
And what are the physical dimensions? I tried everything reasonable, (math 
wise, not actual) and nothing would even come close to .001 uFD's.
