www.thegeekgroup-dot-org would be a great site...but the server's dowm, so I'll
post it here for ya :)
Though terribly lossy, a decent cap can be made for Tesla coil service for
under $50 in about an hour that is easily repaired and ill give you years of
service if properly maintained. Tesla himself used SW (Saltwater) caps, but
Cap technology has progressed a bit in the past hundred years and the
current choice is Metalised film polypropylene. But if cost is a serious
issue, and performance isn't, SW caps are the way to go.
