RE: MOT w/doubler question

Original poster: "Peter Lawrence by way of Terry Fritz <twftesla-at-uswest-dot-net>" <Peter.Lawrence-at-Eng.Sun-dot-com>

      can I current-limit my voltage doubler by using a smaller cap?
Stands to reason, but I think I have to ask. As it came from the microwave
the circuit has a 0.65uF cap, thats 67 times the size of my 9.6nF 
NST-Res-sized tank cap, enough for a lot of gap-arcing energy.
