Great for experiments and simple simple simple and cheap to make.
Now I made the test unit as I did my plasma cutter on a piece of wood and later put it in a cd case using a slim jim tube to encase the arc bars for safty.
I'm not contrating on a case but rather the assembly of the circuit to get it running then you can choose what ever form works best for you putting it into a case.
Have fun and enjoy.

Step 1: Parts List
These are your parts list and a few hints in building it.
Step 2: Warning Warning
This project uses high voltage with high current which can kill you if your not careful.
So please be careful and pay attention to what you are doing and when done put in a case as soon as you can to protect others from getting hurt.
I put mine in a case with a momentary hand switch and a kew switch so it would'nt work with out both together.
Here is a picture of how I did mine and more pictures in last step.
So have fun but be careful.
Step 3: Instructions
Also it gives a few more tips on operating it to lengthing the life of your unit by not holding switch on too long at a time.
Step 4: Pictorial Instruction
Look at each picture and just copy what you see and once you get it working you will know how and what to do to reposition in a case.
Next step is to look at my pictures of how I done mine and last a video of it working.
Be careful and enjoy.
Step 5: Mine in a Case and Video Link
Also I have a link here to see my utbe video of it working.
Have a great time and thanks for dropping by.
