[TCML] For the SISG experienced out there

I'll be the 3rd to give it a go. One thing I have going for me is that
my NST is robust in the current arena, so it can charge a large cap
without hesitation. I've decided to try the NST with 4 SISG boards using
a 60nF cap size. I'll start using an existing coil (only 4.5" diameter).
Interesting is how high the terminal voltage is in this configuration.
The toroid ROC will dictate breakout voltage which is far less than I
calc based on potential, but my calc is in the 700 to 800 kVp range
(meaning it can charge a top load to this potential if the top load
allowed it). Thus, using a large top load is ideal here. So, I'm
considering using my 9" x 30" spun toroid on this little coil (similar
to what I did with my hybrid maggy).
For a plus, the larger toroid allows an extra turn in the primary (5.5
turns). I think the large toroid vs. coil diameter is going to allow
good performance with a smaller cap size (as compared to the norm of
SISG's using large cap sizes). That's my hope anyway. I guess first
light will tell the tale.
