This circuit generates high voltage pulses from 230vac line voltage. The drive end's swing comparator circuit is invented by the creator of this page. The work end is derived from stroboscope trig supply circuit. All line voltage using circuits are inherently dangerous, and this is particulary so. Do not build it.
