    my point was brought up by hearing air core tesla stuff...
    Ive made many big coils and am wondering who else has opinions on sealed spark gaps and using several in series to build the breakdown volt. the ussr tubes are cheap and never burn up or give off oaone the white triggered units are good but expensive I dont bother with rotory units and go with Bigger is better pole pigs and x transmitter caps so what have you guys used in terms of sealed units and which ones.????

    Im going to stack the Eg&g bolt together and the #5ky ceramic vac relay for safery cut off in series.
    may backfill hexaflouride for good quench. and im still playing with hyd thyratrons and using the relay again for off state control, who has a simple thyratron driver ctk handy??

    ITT F207 Thyratron. This thyratron was used as part of an experimental research equipment. was used to switch HV for laser equipment. Good for HV switching for high energy applications or Tesla coil.
    opinions on this?? Il thinking 15 kilawatt powersupply feeding around 27kv from these,
    caps are good for 45kv ,only cost500 or so. will current limit line with surplus submarine reostat.
