    I was just reading the specs on your cap and have one question:  How come
you chose brass to use as the "bus" for the doorknobs.  Aluminum is less
resistive than brass, and copper is far superior to either.   It may not be
that significant, but it could lower the Q of your primary system.  
Just Curious,
