Re: 20 gauge wire
The idea is a that a larger wire lower L secondary can charge a
bigger topload and therefore there is more current available to the arc (for
disscussion of how arcs grow see the 'very long saprk' thread a few months
This is an inexact science, so the optimum for a different coil is rather
difficult to determine (possibly a job for the Microsim boys?) The
theoretical Q factor of a coil does not seem to be too related to arc output
as spark length is not really too dependant on voltage.
