I would be able to supply you with some autocad prints on the rotary gap
that I have made. It is constructed using a 14" diameter G10 disc 1/2"
thick. The framework is made of 1/2" steel and you really would need
access to a Bridgeport mill or equivalent to duplicate this particular
design. I am currently running it with 6 rotating electrodes and two fixed
3/16" tungsten electrodes. It is driven by a 1 HP universal motor that was
purchased by several on this list about 15 months ago from C&H Sales
Company. I run it at 385 PPS with my pole pig and it has been very
reliable. I'll send a photo directly to you, so you can get an idea as to
what I am trying to describe! If there's any interest. Let me know.

I've been lurking on this list for the past 3 months, and spending a
considerable amout of time reading through the archives. Currently I have
been building a coil in my spare time:
10.5" in diameter
35" total winding length of #22 enameld magnet wire
Primary is 1/2" copper tubing spaced 1/4" for a total of 15 turns.
I'm going to power this coil using a 14.4 kv-10 kva pole pig. My question
is: would anyone have plans for an asynchronous RSG? I'm familiar with
construction (IE: using Tungsten electrodes, G10 Phenolic for rotor, ect.).
Thanks for all the great info I have found on this board.
