I picked up a pair of 3k ohm 250 watt resistors last night in hopes that I
could use them for kickback protection for my NST powered coil. I think
maybe the resistance is too high. What value of caps should I use? I'm
currently running a 12/30 NST with no protection at all. I got them cheap,
so no big deal if they can't be used.
3,000 ohm series resistors are what I use on my 3.0" coil running at 12 kv 60
ma. One on each H.V. feed line (they are 25 watt resistors).
