[TCML] Baffle tally (was Secondary Troubles)

I think the point to the thread was about adding sealed disks several inches in from each end of the form - different than simple end caps.
Not sure about how to classify your "greatly overpowered" secondary. If it's a case where having added some internal sealed disks would have prevented damage,then it should be counted as such. But if you were trying to channel 2KVA into a 12" long secondary, then it should be discounted, as nothing would have helped. Uugh, this is where it gets tricky. Unless no one at all reports using sealed baffles...
