    What a coincidence. Another Tesla Coil thread just below this one :)

    Simple question: Is there a reason not to use these capacitors in Tesla coil
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/5pcs-20KV-1...902941?hash=item43c65eaf9d:g:0S8AAOxyFiRR1n4e

    They seem to have very high breakdown voltage, 20kV. Even if it's not that high, I'll only be working with 6kV primary transformer.

    I didn't calculate what capacitance I will need yet, but it seems funny if I would only need one capacitor like this one.
