I jokingly say ask one question of 6 coilers and you'll get 7 different
answers. Myself included.
But I built Terry's MOV array as protection for my NST and after a heavy
duty cycle of my first 900W coil at a local haunted house last year, all
parts of the coil survived the workout (except the secondary which I dropped
at the end of the show :((
Others use the "Terry Filter" and I believe so far it has shown to be a very
good investment of $50 at Digi-Key.

Thank you all for your individual input on chokes. However, this has
served to confuse me even more. Some of you are using a few turns on a
3/4" air core. Some of you are saying not to use an RF choke at all,
and yet more are saying to use many turns on a ferrite core. All the
repliers have claimed that their particular system has worked very well
for them. This is all really confusing. I would very much like to hear
what people like Richard Hull and Quick have to say on this matter if
they are still out there.
Richard Quick used to use 18 turns on a 2" ferrite core. However, this
is exactly what I was using when my neon died, so I am a bit skeptical
of it. Conversely, I ran my coil successfully for months without any
chokes at all! help!!!!!!
