 >>Again this proves that you do not know how the board works.  The 555 timer
is there to inject a start up signal into the comparator which will keep the
coil running.  You obviously haven't looked closely enough at various
schematics for feedback designs.  Most include this extra chip to inject
noise so the coil will start up on it's own.

 >> To modify the 555 timer set up to make it work as an interupter you would
have to cut the traces between the potentiometer and pin 3 to add the diode.

 >>There are no need for insulting,  uncalled for comments.  You have not
shown anyone proof of any of your tesla coil devices working.  Show me and I
will believe you.  I have proof that all of my coils working,  can you say
that for yourself?

 >> My board can drive a variety of loads.  The size of most transistors
people use have a reasonable input capacitance and will work fine with my
board.  Using 110A IGBTs is ridiculous for what you, and others that would
use this board are doing.

I know that!But it WILL with an interruptor!Thats all
 > I said. Once again you are adding false information.

 >>No.  I never said the board will not work with an interupter.  I use one
of my boards in my ISSTC and it works fine with an external interupter.
Mind you,  only the buffer and the gate drivers are being used,  the rest of
the board is empty.

 >>There is no need to insult Richard just because he had some trouble.  We
might say the same about you, many of the things you're saying are incorrect
and you will not listen to reason.

It doesnt prove you know

 >>He bought a bare boarad from me,  I did not install anything except for
the single buffer IC.

 >> No he wouldn't have.  He would most likely be having more trouble due to
the bad advice you have given.  Again,  the things you said are incorrect.

 > Anyone who has this baord, just follw my steps in my earlier reply. IT

 >>Because you do not know how the board functions, and the way you are
suggesting to do things will not work with every set up.

 >>No.  I trust Richard knows what he is doing and I am not worried about his
safety.  Yours on the other hand worries me because the way you are throwing
terms around and suggesting things can cause serious injury if someone was
to follow your expert advice.

 >> I am not flaming you.  You are getting inflamed because I am simply
stating your incorrect claims.
