Re: secondary and primary strikes

Original poster: "Terry Fritz" <twftesla-at-qwest-dot-net>

Hi Adam,

A local coiler here had the same problem.  We raised the secondary about an
inch and very carefully tuned to coil and the sparks went away just fine.  

If the coil is out of tune, I think you get some pure transformer action
(turns ratio voltages) and you can get very big primary to secondary arcs
(we got a foot+ !)  When the coil is in tune, the voltage on the secondary
smooths out and everything is fine.  The tuning was very sharp!  We had to
get it within 1/4 turn on like a 12 turn primary.  In our case, even with
perfect tune will still had a little problem near full power (15/120 NST)
so we raised the secondary a little which fixed it right up.
