"I will be pleased to share my experiences with my divider column once
built. I have the vacuum capacitors (60 units), the large steel tripod base is
built, and the 10 aluminum shield rings have been obtained. All I need is some
time. Hopefully by next summer?

That sounds like a winner - please share results when you finish
it (lots of work!). What will the total capacitance be? For the record,
and I'm sure you've thought of this, this will only give good readings if
there is no corona or streamer discharge to it.
