Thoughts on new bigg coil

Original poster: Bigggcoil-at-aol-dot-com 


   Looking for some insight for a new modified Bigggcoil secondary.  As now 
the secondary is 108" x 24" wound with #14  thhn wire.  It sustained damage 
this winter and the winding has sags in it.  My idea while waiting for a 
new secondary form is winding the same number of turns of the #14 wire onto 
a 11" outside dia PVC form.  Yes thats 108" x 11", quite a stick.
   But how do you think it will perform all else being the same?  Same 
turns, just lower inductance/higher freq.   The old secondary made 26.5 
foot sparks, 21 kVAC input voltage, 120 BPS sync rotory, 0.173 uF cap.  Of 
coarse the primary will be modified & retuned as reqired.  This it just 
temporary untill the new 108 x 24
form is made.  The old secondary was 90 mH, the new one will be 19 mH 
approx.  Same 8' toroid also to be used.   Thoughts?
