G10 strength

Original poster: "Mr Gregory Peters by way of Terry Fritz <twftesla-at-qwest-dot-net>" <s371034-at-student.uq.edu.au>

Hello all,

I have just completed a new g10 RSG rotor. It is 10mm (0.393") thick. 
The outer diameter is 11" and the electrodes are placed at about 9" 
diameter. These are 2" long, 5/16" diameter brass threaded rod. I'm now 
worried that I have the electrodes too close to the edge of the disc 
(1") and it will fly apart. The gap will be a 3000 RPM sync gap with 8 
electrodes for 400 BPS until I get a larger cap, at which point I will 
remove half the electrodes. Do you think the gap will survive?
