Flyback driver, 555 timer and other transformer from wall wart. What transistor?? Answered
I recently got my hands on a flyback transformer (that is, I finally got over it and got it out of the monitor :p ) And I want to make a flyback driver. I already have a normal wall wart hooked up backward.
I was thinking that I could connect the wall wart to the flyback and create massive sparks. Could I directly solder the flyback and the other transformer together? If so, what transistor would you advise to use in my 555 circuit in front of the first, normal transformer?
