Re: ignition coil for high voltage source

Yes, no problem if you are aiming for a smallish coil. Various sites have
circuits using a 555 timer running as a multivibrator and using a power
transistor or FET to switch the primary of the coil. Another option is to
use a phase type power control, but there are problems with this approach.
 There are various approaches to how you can use this to drive a TC.
Including rectifying the output and using this to feed the primary tank
