for your static gap i would suggest getting some carbide inserts. i know
i've been beating this point for some time, but for a static or rotary
they are great. if there's a machine shop in your area you could ask to
buy some worn or chipped carbides, get some that have index holes in the
center for mounting and for your tight gap i would recomend dimond
shaped ones. these have more bulk for cooling and alow more distance
from point to point so a brass bolt can be used for mounting and taping.
i have done some pretty extensive testing with different carbide shapes
and found them a cheap and easy to work with option especialy in
statics, no wear and good conductivity.
if none can be found, drop me a note.
