I'm nearing the end of construction (for now) and I have 4 questions.
1) Has anyone tried to build the spark gap described on this page?
How do you think it will work? It looks fun to build.
2) I know I'm not supposed to mount stuff (MMC, spark gap, primary coil) on
wood because it contains moisture (right?). So I've been told that I should
use many different plastics such as perf board, HDPE, Lexan, PVC, plain old
cutting board, acrylic, polycarbonate, and polypropylene. That's all a
little overwhelming! Is there a difference, what should I use, and where
can I find it?
3) This has probably been discussed before, but I can't find any thing
definitive. How big should my toroid be? I'm planning on using aluminum
ducting and pie pans. I've got a 9/30 NST and a 20" tall 4.5" diameter
4) Is it possible to add another primary under an already existing one and
attach it to a different primary circuit? Would that double the output?
Maybe I'm describing a magnifier. I'm not sure.
