Starting the jet.
Thursday, September 20, 2007
Tonight I finally got the Jet running. Greg figured out a circuit repair using found objects, that we improved over a few iterations and got a suitably reliable spark, if a bit deadly to the problematically absent minded. Nothing like a joule at 10kv to wake you up. One last time….
The outboard sparkplug is the spark gap that sets the discharge point for the capacitor in the high voltage supply. Do Not Touch.
