Would soda cans make a good replacement for copper pipes in the spark gap? Or should I just go out and buy the pipes?
May work for some time, but the thin aluminum may melt soon. These gaps get very hot. You can rotate the cans periodically to expose new areas,
and have the gaps working for more time.
