Hi Bob ...

I have been working on my SRSG and have noticed that at peak voltage levels
( and if the rotory
is a bit early on arrival) the gap distance between electrodes doesnt make
much difference when
we are talking 20 - 50 thou...   I have seen the spark (at the gap)
develope 1/2" long arcs
before and after the gap has lined up.

I set my gaps to 75 thou...  pleanty of clearance and minimal worry about
