You need to be PRUDENT but I think your gap is a little to small 3 sheets
of paper X 6 gaps make around
1/8" if we use the same kind of paper than me. On my last coil I use a
single gap of 1/4" with an OBIT and
a MMC of .0058uF and don't forget that energy ( Joule ) store in a cap
increase at the square of the
Please again be prudent increase your gap space bit by bit because if you
go to far you will blow your
It could be something else too, I try to find the complete spec of your
coil ( kind of transformer V? A?
, size of top load , diameter of the coil ) in the archive without success.
