World's Smallest Electronic Shocker w/LED-PCB Mounted

Picture of World's Smallest Electronic Shocker w/LED-PCB Mounted
This is a 450v high voltage shocker/capacitor charger. Please note, though, that this device has a very high output voltage, and it (might?) kill the weak of heart (not to mention, it HURTS), so be careful when handling any capacitor or high voltage circuit. Thanks to Plasmana who got me started.

Step 1: 1: Get the components.

Go to any place that devolopes desposable camera film. Ask nicely and you should be able to get a couple for free. The guts have already been removed...

Step 2: 2: This is the camera board with components

Here we have the components needed labeled.

Step 3: 3: Components desoldered-PCB marked for cut

Step title says it all.

Step 4: 4: Sand PBC for soldering and drill holes for

Picture of 4: Sand PBC for soldering and drill holes for
I used 220 grit sandpaper and a mini screwdriver to sand the board where illustrated. I couldn't find a drill bit small enought so I used a regular drill with a snapped in half sewing needle for a drill bit. Use the raw edge of the broken needle for the drill tip.

Step 5: 5: Cut PCB board

I used a small reciprecating saw to make the cut. I've seen that some have used wire cutters to do this. But I got the saw.

Step 6: 6: Everything ready for soldering

Here everything is ready to be soldered. The capacitor faces text side out. I bend the leads of the capacitor and wires such that they would not fall thru the holes. After makeing sure that nothing was touching something that is shouldn't be, I soldered everything up. Updated picture forgot to add jumper wire (Shown in Blue on PCB).

Step 7: 7: Finished

All done. The close up picts are second shocker I built. The blue wire in first pict is the orange wire in the rest of the pictures.

This step is very unclear about what you are soldering and desoldering. Please show us more clearly where the jumper wires go and WHAT you are sanding because I dont see any need for it at all.
