anti-flashover ring on top of the primary form, just
above the feedback coil. I think I will include that
in mine, since I have decided to test your extreme
separation of feedback and primary hypothesis. Didn't
you say you had a flashover problem between the top of
the feedback coil and the middle of the secondary for
