Re: Spark gap

I think you refer to a static gap.

The distance of each single gap should be
aproximately the same, small tolerances are OK
as long as you are still aware of the total gap width
and don't exceed reasonable limits.
When you use parallel copper pipes, the distance should
be the same over the whole length of each individual gap
to avoid arcing in the same place all the time.
In my experience the accuracy you can achieve is
usually high enough without the use of expensive tools.
Just give it a try and you will see how good it works and
how and where the arc travels, just don't use a too wide
gap and nothing should go wrong.

Good success!
