Above  the "40" setting of the variac the NST safety gaps really fire 
nearly all  of the time and so far I am afraid to open up the gaps which 
are set to  about 0.125". Does anyone have a comment as to the maximum 
safety gap  opening that I might use on a 9kv NST? It looks like this 
thing will  really perform at higher inputs but I do not want to risk the 
NST  yet.

I would set the safety gaps at 1/4" for each gap assuming they are 
10awg curved wires forming the gap and arcing to the NST case.
