Re: [TCML] MMC pics
I just long a 16 inch long x 4 inch wide x 1/4 inch flat plate of PE
(polyethylene) available from almost any large plastics fabrication/supply
shop. Then you drill the holes exactly where you need them. I mount my MMC
caps with a 1/8th inch space between each cap.
I never use bleeder resistors on an AC circuit as the NST bleeds both ends
off directly to the center tap ground after the coil is shut off. If you
are using a solid state DRSSTC design or using "equi-drive" circuitry then I
always use bleeders. Opinion seems to vary on this topic, but I've never
found an MMC using a standard alternating current NST circuit that contains
any charge after 20 seconds.
Always unplug your coil when moving the tuning tap in case a switch or relay
should suddenly fail.
