Hi Eric, thanks for the input here. The point of the 10nf cap is to be able to choose a frequency to run at and to be able to tune the circuit with the pot.

I was able to get the circuit running with a 6v input and a 330v output AC and with a bridge rectifier 500v+.

I have now changed the circuit in the form of a polyphasing transformer using 4 coils so as to be able to increase the amperage on the output. First trials are encouraging, lower voltage but higher amps. When I have it how I want it, I will post the circuit.
