David, Just include as many details and photographs of the configuration as possible. A few questions: How is the spark gap quenched? Does the toroid have a breakout point on it? Can you lower the capacitance of the MMC and see what happens?

When I first tested it I was getting some arcing from the lower aspect of the secondary to the primary. I fixed the burnt insulation on the secondary, coated the secondary with Polyurethane and added Plexiglas sheeting on top of the primary. Now I am getting arcing on the top few inches of the secondary to itself. Coil Specs Oil Burner Ignition Transformer 10kv @ 23ma Static spark gap Primary 14 turns 0.25" copper tubing MMC 20nF Secondary 4.5" x 19.25" 1085 turns of 26 gauge enameled wire Toroid 4" flexible aluminum duct 20" diameter Ground 12" copper pipe Thank you, David _______________________________________________ Tesla mailing list Tesla@xxxxxxxxxx http://www.pupman.com/mailman/listinfo/tesla_______________________________________________ Tesla mailing list Tesla@xxxxxxxxxx http://www.pupman.com/mailman/listinfo/tesla
