Help - spark jumping on my 300,000 volt ignition

Unread postAuthor: Bzonic » Mon Oct 15, 2007 2:46 pm

So here is my problem: I have a 300,000 volt stun gun (overkill I know)on my combustion cannon and the path to the inner electrode gaps (dual spark) are often shorted because the spark is wanting to transfer to the outer pipe straps that hold the gun on the chamber. Is there any way to insulate the path REALLY good before it gets to the inside gap. Also, any tips on how to securely attach wire ends to the stun gun prongs would be greatly appreciated. Mine never hold for long. Thanks!

It's my first gun by the way and I plan to post some pics soon.

Also 1/4" vinyl irrigation tubing makes a great insulator. Just slide you wire through it and hook evrything up.
