6-in PVC (6.5od) wound 31-in with 22 AWG single build insulation.  Topload 
is 2 toroids, one is 4-15, the other is 7.5-24 (but I am going to swap in 
another 7.5-24 to replace the 4-15, I just haven't done it yet).  4 MOT 
stack, so about 8kV RMS, ballasted at about 200-250 mA (I'm not exactly sure 
about that one, but it is a decent estimate).  My primary cap is 81nf 
(measured), and right now I'd getting about 4-5 ft arcs (which seems low to 
me, but I have to play with the tuning some, and do  some other small 
things.)  My voltage calculations suggested about 500-550 kV out (using 2 
different formulas, but I may be mistaken).  Thanks.
Scott Bogard.
