    Nice 2.75 High voltage feed feedthrough it looks great.
    you might want to use kapton tape on the internal wire to provide less current leakage.

    Great work!

    Dan,

    There has actually been alot of discussion about the benefits and drawbacks of shielding the internal wire of the feedthrough. I’m probably going to tinker around with both unshielded and shielded internal wire and of course I’ll post my results here.
