Wiring the stungun for a chamber

Unread postAuthor: CJ_70 » Sun Apr 08, 2007 12:05 am

I'm just a noob, so please help a brother out...

Okay...I finally built my first potato gun today. It's pretty cool. 8) I haven't fired it yet though because of one problem...

I can't figure out how to properly wire my stun gun to make more than one spark!! :evil: :evil:

I've been trying on a few spare pieces of PVC that's the same size as my chamber, but i cant get it. I either get only one spark inside it PVC or i get a lot of sparks outside the PVC, which isn't any help.

So if anyone can please help me out with wiring three or four sparks inside the chamber, I'd never be able to thank you enough.

Aslo, if you could show me a picture AND break it down for me, it'd be great.

here is another one.

see how there is four bolts in this one? the two upper ones are connected to the stun gun. One is negative, the other is positive, they jump to the bottom ones on their own. ( at least i think thats how it works, im not an electriton, so you better ask someone else to make sure)

Wire it in a series.

Make one of your wires lead to one screw and have the spark jump a gap to the next screw, then on that screw that the spark jumped to have a wire leading to another another screw (just across your chamber) and the spark will jump that gap and so on.
Get it? Ill see if I can find a pic.
Couldn't find a good one so I drew this up with paint, same concept with triple ignition or quad ignition.
Click on the picture to make it bigger, you will be able to see everything, some parts aren't showing in the small version.

Thanks fom.

That helped a lot.

I got four sparks equally placed through out the chamber.

It's great; loud boom and everything.

I'm in love...
