Depending on which of the three circular hole pattern rows are used as positive stops in adjusting the spark gap, the following increments can be had:
1 / (40 tpi) x 30 holes = 1 / 1200" increments
1 / (40 tpi) x 120 holes = 1 / 4800" increments
1 / (40 tpi) x 360 holes = 1 / 14400" increments

Keyed switches select 3500 or 5000V transformer and cap arrangement
