Coils can be a lot of fun. Nothing feels better than shooting nails from a 300 volt discharge (well... maybe shooting a pig with it). So I decided to make such a thing. This is the first version. The next will include a larger capacitor bank and a stronger coil. http://kbcarte.wo. . .-coil-gun/

better things to do with camera parts
In relation to the 'new' topic, I tried to make a RFID zapper out of the same capacitor techb used.
It would have been a cool idea, not counting the fire it caused and all that.
(Which was not my fault, by the way)
The irony of man's condition is that the deepest need is to be free of the anxiety of death and annihilation; but it is life itself which awakens it, and so we must shrink from being fully alive. http://www.stealt. . .
speaking of fires, I caused a forest fire once when I was 8. Three different county's fire trucks where there, and all the local news stations. I was sentenced to 120 hrs of community service. I had to scrub the graffiti off of the bolder at the state forest....
Another bad idea I have tried was stuffing a tennis ball full of "strike anywhere" match heads, and threw it at a brick wall.... Turns out tennis balls bounce, so I had a flaming ball zipping toward my face.
