Re: [TCML] *Another* gap...

OK, just when I thought I'd understood enough to begin construction, I found
this - another spark gap across the main cap here:
What relation is this to the main gap?
A few people have used an extra safety gap across their tank cap for added
protection if the main gap fails to fire. There has been some debate as to
whether or not this causes more problems with high surge currents in the cap
possibly doing more damage if the gap should fire than not having it. IMO, if
your safety is properly set, you do not run near resonance, you have a proper
voltage margin in your MMC design, and you make sure your connections are all
solid, it is not a necessary piece of equipment.
