magnetically quenched gaps

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

Could someone give me some guidelines for constructing a magnetically 
quenched gap? I would like to use a static gap in series with my new 
RSG, but can't really afford the extra power drain of an air compressor 
or large vacuum cleaner motor. I need to have a gap that uses minimal 
power as I only have about 30 amps to play with, and I want as much as 
possible going to the actual supply transformer! A magnetic gap seems 
to be the best alternative.
