Hi-Voltage Variable Capacitor – Finished!

I wrapped the PE film around the center copper pipe lined everything else up and basically finished it! The feed mechanism works great and is not sensitive to me touching the tuning shaft. I should be able to finish the 40m loop now as the RG-213 that forms the loop will just connect to each end of the capacitor directly. I already have a toroid ready to work the matching so I will just have to size and cut the spreaders.The capacitor will be at the top of the loop this time with the feed point at the bottom. Been a great afternoon of homebrewing and realizing an idea that I had been working on for some time.
