Re: MMC Question.

Original poster: otmaskin5@xxxxxxx A question related to Gary's points on setting spark gap size. If your gap is set so that it consistently fires with only the NST connected, by definition, that seems to be a relatively safe setting within the NST's ability to tolerate the voltage during TC operation - is that a reasonable assumption?

In my case, I have a 15/60 NST with an 8-segmented gap with a total gap size of 0.24". I'm thinking that's reasonably conservative. Maybe too conservative since it readily fires at 0.24?

Thx in advance for your advice.  Dennis Hopkinton MA
