like i was told if you cant work it out for yourself (eg. use a multimeter and batt for testing) dont attempt the project. DONT BUILD IT IF U DONT UNDERSTAND HOW IT WORKS

wow thats not helpfull at all. thats the point of doing stuff like this is to learn about it, and besides i dont mess with high volts and wattage unless i have the proper tools and safety equipment to do so. low volts and wattage ill play with been like that for bout 13 years now and im still alive.

So, jshpps, I completely understand your frustration. This is definitely not the kind of project that someone should do as a first project, but that doesn't preclude you from learning about them!

I agree. The whole point of Instructables is to inform other users of potential dangers/benefits that most projects have. We are all here to learn. Pinouts are not something that can easily be determined on ones own. I'm still trying to find resources on how to connect mine. And NO ONE seems to be able to help me on this. I can understand with the number of flyback transformer manufacturers on the market, but a little background would be helpful.

robsdoin: Perhaps you could elaborate on how to test one out using a multimeter and a bettery?
