Re: Grounding my TC

Original poster: "david baehr" <dfb25@xxxxxxxxxxx>

I have asked before, but will ask again, I run my coil with a single bushing Xfrmer. One side of the high voltage is the case. I have the case and the bottom of the secondary tied to the same ground (earth ground ) ,...so far , all is well , Opinions on this set-up please & thankyou!!!
