I used the plans to make a 6 inch by 6 inch by 1/4 glass capacitor. The plans tell you to use a bigger piece glass with more aluminum foil in between but looking at the hookup of the aluminum foil and the way I would use it I went ahead and used 24 gauge copper plates due to I wanting the capacitor to last forever with out tearing. I am sure the aluminum foil would work but could get damaged easily. The copper is easier to solder wires from plate to plate rather then using a bolt with the aluminum foil.
