Re: [TCML] dc tesla coil

I got a good start today on the rsg for my dc coil and have coming 24 of
the 942c20p15k  .15uf/2kv  caps and 4 8ufd/4000 volt capacitors for my
power supply.   Will the tank capacitor be able to fully charge with my
rsg?  I have it set up to charge twice and fire twice per rotation.  My
2ufd power cap should be able to keep the output voltage steady when using
a high voltage plate transformer or my smaller pole pig.  I will start out
at about 7 or 8kv to see how well the rsg works.  Any suggestions will be
welcome.  Charles
