    Thanks for the quick answer!I think I'll start off with a simple MOSFET circuit then and see where that will get me, just to get the project up and running without getting sucked into the details of electronics. I'm interested in what I could accomplish with the H-bridge nontheless and since the components are cheap, I'll think I'll go see what's there somewhere down the road. I will let you know my findings when the prototype is done :)Last question before I get to it, did you do any calculations or optimizations on the thin metal plates to try and get close to resonance? I mean, the following situation would be ideal:- Coil on, pushes plate to max positive amplitude- Coil off- Plate `bounces' back to max negative amplitude just at the time the coil turns on again.As far as I can see, ...

I mean, the following situation would be ideal:- Coil on, pushes plate to max positive amplitude- Coil off- Plate `bounces' back to max negative amplitude just at the time the coil turns on again.As far as I can see, this can be adjusted by moving the plate fixation up or down (so the free end gets shorter or longer, respectively). I was wondering if you did any experimenting or calculating on that part, too.Thanks again for the great work.
