Lightbulb Help/advise required with Hendershot generator

I have recently made a first attempt to build a hendershot generator (using the info and schematics I found on the web. When complete it did not work. I have checked the capacitors and they are all OK. When I constructed the basket-coils I did not find solid copper wire insulated with PVC, therefore I had to use multicore copper wire. Also, as step-up transformers I only found toridal transformers 240 to 2x 24V. I connected the 2x24 in series to get 48V and I connected the transformers in the circuit the other way around, trying to use them as step-up. The bar magnet I used is very strong (rare earth magnet). Is anybody able to help me fault-find this construction ? Thanks.
