If you saw 12 inches in the daylight, I can tell you they are A LOT longer!

OK I sanded the inside of the coil - did not remove all of the trace but
abou 90% - I will work on this again later.
Cleaned the inside with alcohol, made sure not to get alcohol on the
Removed the metal connector on the top and replaced it with a nylon
bolt, relocated the top of coil to outside the form.
I ran the coil again for about 30 seconds with no evidence of streamers,
then checked inside the form to see if there was any fresh scoring -
there was none.
Re-adjusted the primary tap and got 12" streamers coming off the top.
Difficult to say how long they really were as it was sunny outside. But
Now I can start to get it optimized...
