Ahoy pinheads,

I am working on getting a Stargate cleaned up. Getting a parts list together and when testing the machine I noticed
sparks on the vuk coil connections sparking. Both terminals. I examined the coil and connections. No cracked solder joints/missing insulation on wires. It is a factory connection. For the heck of it I removed the coil and replaced it. Cut and re-soldered the wires. Same thing! Works fine, just sparks at the connections. Correct voltage. Anyone else see this?

Does it have a diode installed?
