Do you have a schematic for the solid-state driver circut?  If so where can
I get this.  I am looking to build a smaller coil.  As far as plans for a
nice coil, try Information Unlimited.  www.amazing1-dot-com There designs are
not great but you can get sparks "right out of the box"

If you have any further questions, just reply.       M. Andrus
