Indeed nice work, I am having fun with my kit also but last weekend I brought it with me to show some people and one neon bulb bent a little and touched a tranistor during transport so when I fired it up for the demo I smoked it

Regardless I have some new parts on the way and will make it a little more portable this time

I noticed you have what looks like metal bent over the back of your drive coils. Does that help the strength of the magnetic field? Are the extra transistors just added in paralell to allow for more current to the coils when firing?
