bigger inductors

When doing replication attempts, use commons sense!

This is essentially a modified boost converter. It would be very hard to build a good efficient boost converter which has a an inductance made out of a few turns of wire. You want high amperage high inductance (many turns, perhaps a core) chokes made out of nichrome if you are going to stick with the origional schematic. (I would argue that heating elements can come after the chokes).
