Re: Primary coil
Original poster: "Gerry Reynolds" <gerryreynolds@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>
If you want to get a nicer looking primary, you might want to try
using eight spokes of support instead of four.
BTW, I have used wood for primary support on my first coil using a
12KV 30ma NST. The wood was varnished before mounting the copper and
it never failed. Of course I decommissioned it to work on my 2nd and
larger coil. For that, I used HDPE for the supports. It is softer
than acrylic and doesnt have the tendacy to crack.

Hi, thanks for the replies. Matt D, I will only be using a 9kv 30ma
NST for the coil. Should I still add the HDPE plastic or will it be
ok? I think the supports are at a 35 degree horizontal angle, but I
am not sure of the difference between the two. I cut the bottom of
the supports to a 35 degree using an angle cutting table saw.
Ed, I had just assumed the epoxy was flammable. The package confims
that it is not flammable. I do care about how good the primary
looks, and tried my best to make it look nice and even. Mounting
another piece of wood or some plastic on top is what I will probably do.
