    I seem to be having problems with my spheroid. The center post is touching the ground screw and shorting out, you can see the discoloration in the pics. Any advice on how i can get this bad boy up and running again? :(

    Umm yeah no...

    Are the two screw heads about even height? I'm wondering if maybe the positive is cranked down a little too tight. Is the insulator squished down maybe?

    The posts have been assembled upside down; the Philips screws are supposed to be placed from the upper side of the base and the nuts at the bottom.

    I should have said this is a v1 with the thumb nuts that holds the coil down and the pics are looking inside the bottom base :) .... i put some new insulators in and all seems well!!
