flyback transformer driver for beginners: is there a substitution for the flyback transformer? Answered

My son wants to do the flyback transformer driver but we can't seem to find a flyback transformer. Is there a safe replacement or substitute?

They can be found in old photocopiers and laser printers too.

Search for "voltage multiplier." Like a flyback (or any transformer), they need an AC source of some kind. I'd expect a flyback to be less expensive, though.

No HV project is necessarily safe, of course.

Not really...

If it is just for high voltage you can try a neon transformer.

Delivers 10-20.000V...

Although X-ray transformers can be used as well, bit pricey though.
