No problem, I don't usually have my notes handy either. Thanks for
the info. I have another question/idea; is this the TC that had the gap
that ran intermittently and that used the blast of air that caused the
gap-arc to bend? If so, maybe the gap firing voltage was higher than
8kV at times, because the air blast may have delayed the firing,
allowing the cap to charge a little longer resulting in a larger bang?
Did you measure the firing voltage during operation, or are you
basing it on a pre-setting without air blast?
