Hi Scott,
      I read the other replies and basically concur that this would present some difficulties unless you used a fairly good ceramic like boron nitride....I don't know the mechanical properties of it, so it could fly apart.  I only know it's a great insulator for electricity and a great conductor for heat.. Not sure if it would work for your idea.   I think having a normal rotary gap and possibly a quench gap in series would work better.
  Hey all,
     I'm sure this has been done before by somebody somwhere, but I got
idea.  Could one build a spark gap, that consisted of a single gap
two stationary electrodes, with a disk, an insulator, that spun between
them.  the disk would have holes in it allowing the gap to arc
as the holes passed the stationary electrodes.  Would there be any
to this design (my thinking is that a single gap would lead to
higher efficiencies, and if one could find a very thin but strong
it would be very easy to build).  Just felt like potting that out
