I don't see why you say you can't do that.  The purpose of the 555 on the 
board is to start oscillations any time the power at the bridge goes too 
low to give feedback via the antenna.  Ones it starts recieving enough 
feedback, it takes over and runs the coil at/near it's Fres.  Once you use 
the 555 as an interruptor, however, you've lost that capability.  Perhaps 
you should take a closer look at the board and its operation rather than 
telling people that something won't work.

Woah, no need for personal attacks here . . . though many of us live in the 
"real" world, and do have digital cameras, they're a nice convenience.  I'm 
not insulting you here, I just think the statement was a little harsh!
