Re: [TCML] strike rails
Hi Matt and everyone else who replied,
Thank you very much for you input. I'm still not sure as to whether or not
I'll put one on, but the other day while running the coil I watched as one
of the streamers crept downward and latched onto the primary tap cable for a
moment. It was one of those slow motion moments that was probably over in
half a second, but it got me wondering as to whether or not I should put one
on. ( No ill affects noted during or afterwards) I was trying a different
top load at the time. If I stick to my sphere with a breakout point on top,
I don't think I'll have to worry too much about strikes like that.

Subject: Re: [TCML] strike rails
Could someone please tell me if strike rails should be a closed loop, or
remain open? I think I've seen them both ways (but I can't always be
online photos). Could you give me the whys/why nots of either setup?
Strike rail MUST be open loop or it will waste power from your system.
Many people categorize strike rails in with seat belts, safety helmets,
condoms, and air bags. They're an inconvenience and you can run without
months or years, right up until that OH S*** day when you should have
"Has anyone actually encountered that Pair o' Doxies of time travel?"
"Visualize whirled peas."
