Subject: Thyratron switched coils

hi all 
      I must say  these h2 thyratrons  sound like fun.  I imagine they must cost
a fortune new. I am good at finding the weird and wonderfull but I dont think I
have come across these anywhere. What sort of equipment would they be found in?
High power RF heaters used in the heat treatment industry maybe. Any UK sources?
Are they viable on small coils? They sound easier than trying to build a RSG and
a good bit safer. I can cope with burnt skin better than exploding rotors.
