I don't know about the reusable part, but I can vouch for the pain part if you shock yourself.

I still have a scar on my thumb, and that was about 3 months ago.

Hmm, I was planning on using camera caps for a coilgun I'm designing.

Not because I'm cheap (but if it's free... :P), but because camera caps are very good for coilguns, and it's often hard to get equivalents new.

It's annoying finding unmarked capacitors.

You know it's probably 330v but you can't tell for sure its capacitance.

By the way, was the kodak board thing I posted any help?

omfg. You are one lucky man. yes indeed. I should go to Target and ask for some. then I wouldn't have to buy my cameras just for the circuits.

Thanks for the tip :)

Heads up on the Polaroid circuit board. The Funshooter comes with a few different boards. And the one you have is not the good one. They fry real easy. Adding any more batteries to that board and the components burn. Silverdooty removed them from his camera post and was in the process of updating it to show the better of the boards when he passed away. Don't waste your time with that board. :(
Just steal the cap off from it.

I got my mum to go ask for some in Boots and Lloyds Pharmacy, but the bastards said it was a health risk. It took her an arm and a leg and an hour of negotiating to get...four.
