Re: Spark gap adjustment

What I use for my rotary flying electrodes are "bulkhead connectors"
available from any shop that deals in hydraulics or pneumatics. They can be
the pictures of my gap (hot streamer /bob g's gap) They have olives on each end
which clamp on to the electrodes. I am using 4.8 mm electrodes with 5 mm
These are off the shelf and only need drilling out in the centre. The hole is
slightly smaller than 5 mm thought the connector. They come in different
sizes up to
22 mm and are also cheap (about 5 dollars each).. Contact me off list if
more info or a better picture. Thanks to Ian Jackson for the idea.
