Re: first light

Well done russell,
 another UK coiler.  I got about the same out of my coil at first light. I
would open up the gap a bit. Stop when the transformer blows then back off a
bit. Remember that the gap will get dirty after a few runs, so keep an eye
on it and clean it with fine emery. I have found that having holes in the
sides opposite the gaps really helps with the quenching. This is really
important, if you run the coil for a few minutes and the sparks get shorter
you need more quenching. This is not always obvius? at first.
