Well, I think is it time for me to....

...start knuckling down and making some of the more interesting things I have wanted to make (all the while still looking for the parts for what I have already started)....I spend a wee bit too much time exercising my fingers and the the brain seems to be going soft. (hmmm, you didn't think I was leaving or anything, huh? I will leave when they pry my cold dead fingers from my keyboard LOL (with apologies to Charlton Heston).

I am going to start simple.....I am going to make this look a little better and also more useful at least, hopefully. I also want to test a few ideas with it.

Then on to bigger and better things....

Added more to the BOX, added a few more pictures.....

I can't believe how well this works :-0

I did have to fiddle with it a bit to get it too work, and did that before putting it in a case obviously.

Very nice. I like it. :D Did you use 2 toroids? Good idea. Now you just need to double up on the transistors.

Aww, 90% of what I do is electronics (even though my ibles don't seem to demonstrate that). I have this love/hate relationship with electronics.....a fear of being shocked, and a fascination with how it all works.....thankfully, the fascination outweighs the fear.
Hehe, a fear of being shocked, i touch the output of ignition coils and step down transformers reversed for fun ;-)
Ouch! You like electrocuting your self! Well never touch the outputs of a marx generator and the voltage multiplier...
I dont go anywhere near marx generators, voltage multipliers or anything else unless i need it to survive. And yes i like shocking myself and others :-) (i got my sister to touch both terminals of a dual ignition coil =P)
