Re: [TCML] Proper NST Protection

NST's with safety gaps, on average, last significantly longer than those  
without. Those with Terry filters last longer than those without. Both are  
significant, but he single best improvement is the safety gap.

I've  been running a half-dead NST on my coil it's entirenlife without   
knowing it, and now's the time to deal with it... The pain of buying  a  
new one without the experience of blowing it up! Pitiful...  Anyways,  
to keep this new one on it's way in mint condition, I need  some form  
of protection. This calls for a safety gap and/or a Terry  filter. I'm  
nowhere close to being able to afford the parts for one  of those. So,  
will a safety gap across the HV terminals be adequate  enough  
protection for the new NST? Or do I need to fork out another  $60 (i  
dont have) on this  thing?
