    now i have question about my neon sign transformer - i use it for Jacobs ladder no problem, so i know it puts out the 12kV, but its AC - do i need to use HVDC (like your other example with the flyback transformer and the FET?)

    i downloaded the files and used Creator Pro to print. Turned out great i think - only things i saw were the electrode holders might need some beefing up and also, i used an 8d nail for the shaft (pointy end up) and drilled and tapped the top for a #4-40 screw.
