Timed Shocker, or Shocker w/ a Timer Answered

I was wondering if anyone knows how to build a shocker hooked up to a timer? Or at least how to hook up a timer to a shocker? If anyone can show me how to hook a good, strong shocker to an electronic timer, i'd be grateful. I already have a timer and i can post pics of it's insides if anyone wants a look, it's the one i plan to use. I was hoping to rig it up to the world's smallest shocker. Thanks in advance.

If the timer is electronic, and sounds a buzzer, replace the buzzer with a wire from the shocker to the shockee, with the other wire going there directly. If it's a mechanical timer, go old-school and use the turning dial to close a switch.

the clock buzzer output won't keep 300+ V in open circuit. it goes directly to a chip that is designed for 1.5 V. itll just break down

So replace the buzzer with a relay that will survive the voltage.

if the buzzer output can supply enough for the relay to work + if the relay will react to 1 KHZ pulsed dc otherwise a transistor is required

Of course - it was just a vague idea in response to a fairly vague request.

I quite like the idea of a clockwork timer - if you can find a wind-up egg timer, and connect it to a disposable camera-flash? Or the classic alarm clock. L

It's a classic of the home-made bomber - a wire on each hand of the clock, connected to the detonator - when the hands meet...

Yep, but which wire do you cut first? L

I was thinking 'blue' - maybe I'll leave these things alone in future... L

I forgot to mention that I don't really know anything about electronics, so if you could show me a diagram I'd be grateful. The shocker I plan to use is Plasmana's https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-build-the-Worlds-Smallest-Electronic-Shock/. The timer does connect to a buzzer with two wires. I just don't know how I would rig it up to the shocker.
