This sounds kind of dumb, to me anyway, but are you able to use plastic
bottle caps and glass bottle caps together in series? In my tesla coil
setup i have 3 glass bottle caps and 1 plastic bottle cap. When i turned
the power on the plastic cap was discharging but the glass were not. Is it
because of the plastic caps higher capacitance. I also took the plastic
cap out of the picture but the glass caps still were not firing. I see no
design fault. I have a glass rootbeer bottle with a half of a aluminium
can and a 3 in. screw in the middle. 12kV-at-30mA trans. I just don't
understand it, maybe it's something i am just overlooking. You know the
most obvious solution is the best answer.
