Firstly, Bert, Great work! Very impressive performance.

Anyone who is criticising Richard Hull's work with magnifiers should be
very sure of what they are saying. Richard Hull's experimentation was
based off pure experiment and very little maths or theory. He tried sync
gaps, async gaps and all. There was a point where he was winding over
30-40 coils a year, most of which were driven to burning point just to
see what they could take. In other words, I think he has made more coils
than anyone else on this list. His results and coiling advice are made,
not from mathimatical measurement and modelling, but from building heaps
of coils and seeing what works best. I have never seen a two coil system
(except some very small systems) work as well as his magnifiers. I don't
care if theory and maths tells us that magnifiers can't work as well as
normal coils. I don't care if a low BPS sync gap with a big cap is more
efficient than an async gap. I still have never seen his performance
matched, and I will continue to build my coils to his specifications
until I see a design which not only is theorectically better, but has
the sparks to match.
