Ignition source

Unread postAuthor: Spedy » Sun Jun 24, 2007 7:46 pm

I'm looking for a reliable ignition source. AdvancedSpuds recommends lantern lighters but I can;t find a suply that isn't on-line only. Is there any place these can be store-bought?

If anyone knows a REALLY GOOD brand of bbq sparkers please tell, because I've read that they need to be replaced often exept for the good brands.

Thanks.

EDIT: Nevermind, I have recently found out that Ace hardware carries lantern sparkers. *whacks self with peice of exploded pvc* I can;t beleive I didn't think of that place before. lol

okay, but right nw I don't have access to ANYTHING usefull for spudding other than a cheesing huge 2000 psi air compresser... but no piping and I don't do pneumatics.

Edit: ARG!!! everything for the flyback but the transistor, and there are n good transistors for this in the area..... :sad8:

Again, Where do you people that use lantern lighters get them?

power transistors

all you need is a high power transistor or power MOSFET!!
you can power the flyback with a 555 timer and a power MOSFET.
i still want to find a design that works with the new type flyback the ones where you cant change the windings!!!!
