Re: tungsten carbide magnetic?

hmmmm... mount them on "posts that swivel" so that they are all in series and turn them to open up the gaps

bad ascii art lay them this way _ _ _ _ _ _ adjust by angleing them / / / / / ( not quite so harsh of an angle tho )

just a thought...

I am designing a static spark gap using 1/8" tungsten welding rods (yes, thoriated but to be used outside). I have access to phenolic fiberglass to support them. I have a total of 10 rods that I would like to lay parallel and still have some way to adjust gap length. Of course I would love to build a SRSG but that's too involved for now.
Any suggestions?

but do you need that extra diameter? I am using 1/8" dia pure welding tungsten no thorium ( and you know what power Im dealing with ;) ... and have very little wear and erosion problems.. plus the minimal diameter makes it easier on disc design and dwell time...
