Re: HV resistors needed?

Actually you can string diodes together to get HV capability.
1N5408 diodes are 1000 volts at 3 amps.
1N4007 diodes are 1000 volts at 1 amp
The above can be gotten from
1N5408 10 cents each
1N4007 10 for 20 cents.
shipping for less than $30.00 is 3 bucks.
I ordered a bunch of the 1N5408s a while ago and shipping was prompt.
