Hi All,
    The McMaster-Carr mica cap failed today.  I was working for the first ten
minutes or so and then shorted.  This was using three layers of mica and using
my 12kV neon.  I was still trying to tune the coil and may have created a
spike that punctured it.   I will perform an autopsy after I finish this
