 I am building a small (4") coil powered by a 9KV 30ma NST, all of 
 the primary circuit components will be enclosed in a box made of 
 plexiglass and wood.  My question is should I put the switch on the 
 enclosure or should it be remotely located in a separate box.  I 
 have not really noticed how this is set up except on the really 
 big coils.
 Any suggestions?

I usually mount the main power switch, variac, current & voltage meters, etc.
several feet away from the coil - well out of strike range.
