Re: Intro.., and Protection Filters
I enjoyed looking at your photos, especially your twin. In some of the
text, you mentioned you thought you should be getting longer sparks than you
This prompted me to see if I could spot a gap in your strike rail. I didn't
see one in your photos, but no one photo showed the entire strike rail.
>From what I see in your photos, you are an expert and no doubt have a gap.
But if you don't have a gap in the rail, it will act as a shorted turn and
will waste some of the available energy which otherwise would go to your
secondary. This could account for less than the performance you want.
Again, thanks for a great website!
