 Finished the variable oscillator and the power output circuitry today,
consisting of a 555 timer and a horizontal output transistor. This
drives the very large (old) TV flyback transformer. I am getting 3-4
inch arcs without tripler circuit connected. Next: hookup the spark-gap
circuit and feed this to the primary of tesla coil. Will attempt
resonance. Wish me good luck ! Images soon.
