Equidrive - was New Lab ..

Ed and all ...

I have been running a "eqidrive" configuration with an H-bridge
rotary for a few years with no cap failures yet. Each cap is 0.1uF
at 50kV. I don't have an hourmeter, but if any setup is going to
be hard on caps it should be this one. They are Maxwells, though.
