of course), would it be suitable as the rotor in a rotary spark gap for a
low-power SG coil ???

Has anyone actually tried this?  Just a thought, so no biggie if it's goofy.

Might work, but if you were to use them to interrupt the arc itself, I was told that it would just be a sireen.

On another note, I once considered a stack of CDs as a capacitor, but never figured out a way to make the connections.
