That's cool, because I am doing exactly the same thing"

	I'm glad it's not just me then...

	The bad news is I tried at 2/3 of full power tonight (about 200V)
with the primary cap, and my FET's died. I suspect its either I'm drawing
more current with the primary cap in circuit that I was with the straight
SSTC, or I need more over voltage protection on the out put of the bridge,
At present I only have a 400V tranzorb across each FET. When I get chance
Ill add with some beefy diodes to the supply rails and try again with my
current pickup in circuit.

	Maybe its time to simm the coil more accurately with the primary cap
and see what I'm really getting.

	As you say, You learn much more by doing it the hard way...
