RE: primary tap construction~

I use two fuse clips (available from digikey) mounted on a small block of
aluminum.  Two 4-40 tapped holes for the clips and a 6-32 or 8-32 tapped
hole for the connection wire.  I haven't really checked mine for heat or
anything and I am running a 12kv/60ma NST.  If you still can't find anything
to use, contact me off list and I'll send you one (I have extra clips,
aluminum bar and about 20 minutes).

Could I use Jumpercable clips?
