Flyback transformer question.? Answered


I have an urge to play with high voltage.  Maybe a Jacobs' Ladder, maybe a plasma speaker, maybe just make sparks and burn myself.

Does the make / model of flyback transformer matter?  Or do they all connect the same way?

For instance, would you recommend this model?

-To my (lack of) knowledge, they're pretty much all the same. They might have some different pins at the bottom, but they all have the same essential bits.

-You have to buy one on eBay? Are dead CRTs really that hard to come by?

That was an example, but, in this age of LCD TVs, they are getting scarce as freebies.

All CRTs have them though, don't they? Including portable TVs?

Yes, they have to have one to make the HT and do the scan.
