I haven't tried exactly what you are mentioning, but tried the type of
interrupter using a large sheet of lead and a small platinum electrode in a
sulfuric acid solution. It worked. I think the idea came from a reprint of
a very old book on building large inductors. I used it to supply a ignition
coil powered TC. I applaude your investigation of the old technology.
Perhaps you will come up with something new and wonderful while experimenting
with such devices.
