I would definitely be on the lookout for some suitable sized steel, but given the performance of the micro hybrid even at 28x, I'm not sure it would be a worthwhile project to follow through.
I like the new avatar, try flipping it the other way so it looks like he's saying your post
It's cereal guy
I actually tried flipping it before but it didn't seem right for some reason.

I think I see where this is going and I like it
see the attached diagram, basically the components are glued to a foam disk then to the cartridge body using araldite or similar quick setting epoxy, then marine epoxy is poured.
Also what depth are your epoxy pours?
Around 10mm in this case
A max spark gap I would think operable is .5mm or .020" down to .2mm or .008".
0.5mm is what I usually aim for, just barely not touching, though again in this case with the cartridge the work was a bit sloppy.
It looks as though the max difference from Schrader to your electrodes OD is 1.5mm or .060". You should have at minimum, about 3 times your spark gap opening.
If I have the theory right, it depends on mix number, ie the higher the mix number, the bigger the difference between internal and external gap should be.
I have some other ideas for the electrode. What is your electrode material made of?
I'd like to hear them, currently I'd using springy steel we call "piano wire", I think it's "music wire" in the states.
