Re: Arcing and Flames in WEM
Make sure ALL corbonized circuit board material is removed. If it is black it has to go. Even if you have to dig a hole all the way through the board. That carbonized stuff conducts, and so new arcs will form. There is something called Corona Dope that TV guys use. It looks like nail polish, but it is special high voltage paint you can dab on things to prevent arcing.
