Does anyone know if they still make ceramic disc capacitors with built in spark gaps? They used to use these a lot in tube type color tv sets. These were made to arc if the capacitor voltage was somewhat exceeded. On the top of the disc, there was molded in a small spark gap. It had a little cut in the ceramic separating the two electrodes. I was thinking these would be handy in tetrode and triode circuits if they're still being made. I've not seen any in years anywhere but haven't looked either that much until now. If they do still make them, who is and where is a possible supplier? Thanks all in advance.
