RE: Variac and stationary gap TCs

An interesting question! Yes, if your cap is mains-resonant, your
will achieve resonant rise sufficient to fire the gap at a very wide
variac-range, not just near the top. But even with a cap that is 2X
static gap will fire over a surprisingly wide variac range. I would
recommend the use of a variac regardless of cap LTR-ness and gap type.
Thanks Gary, I now have a variac on order. This will make a much better
controller than my current "emergecy stop" button.
