Lashing it together and first tests…
Thar she blows !! Not much, just 15mm, but oh so important !!
Probably the worst primary and feedback coils ever wound ! It just goes to show how wildly you can flaunt the basic design concepts and still get sparks.
The birds nest ! A messy lash-up to get the ball rolling and find the weak spots in my design, stand well back ! The meters measure supply volts and current drawn.
Deep joy ! Happiness is a hot cathode !
The two transformers, the right hand one is a 300w 24v supply for the heaters and on the left is the microwave oven transformer for the high voltage supply.
