     Not to worry, i will do about 2-4 years research before i attempt anything
with high voltage. I also think i would submit my plans for approval to list
members, prior to building. I  think i prefer water cooled coils, but need to
look into the + and - of the situation. I might also suggest that the addition
of borates to oil (if you can get them to mix) would prevent fires. I will
attempt to try that with a small quanitity, and then light fire to it. 
Seems like borates are used in electrolitic capacitors if my memory serves.
