Maybe you can use this circuit for the oscillator?

Exactly what I want, but that price tag is ridiculous. I like the square boards since its so easy to bridge the connections with just solder, dont need any jumpers/leads :) http://www.ebay.com/itm/251162897652?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649 found this atleast its about half price...

I have not tried any of above so no opinion on them. I used to work with welding and I tried alot of helmets from different brands. If you going to weld much buy a good quality helmet, I love Kemppi brand helmets. Regardless just make sure that the helmet meets all safety restrictions. Its for your ...

Thanks jrrdw, im gonna call mouser this afternoon and see about shipping. Seems a bit harsh with 20euro for shipping since we are located in the same country. If they dont have their supplies located at a different location. Thanks dewey-1! Im having problem finding SIDACs but seems like mouser have...

Since im not native to English it can be hard to find parts sometimes. Dont know If its ok to keep in i this thread or maybe it should be moved to some other category. I leave that to the moderators to decide. I would like to know other names for 2 components: Gas Discharge Tube, Spark Gap SIDAC Wha...

Update! I just soldered the components to a real PCB and guess what, now I get 460v out, and I change the capacitor to 300v in less than 5sec and 350 in 10sec, so there were probably some bad connections on the breadboard. All seems well, now I just have to sit back and wait for the mailman to deliv...

I just took my disposable camera circuit apart since the parts were so spread out on the board. I salvaged the transformer, transistor and diode. When I put them together I only got about 260v out, so i started to look at the old board and noticed that there were a 220 ohm resistor going from the tr...

The transistor on my disposable camera is marked D1960 or DI960 under that its a C thats over lined like c but above instead of underneath.
I cant find this transistor datasheet anywhere. Suggestions, tips?
My camera circuit is from a focus . I heart my camera

That 300v is weaker than 400v is kinda basic, and that was not what I asked. Please read the question.
And no a capacitor is not a amplifier, thats not what i asked either. I was referring to the transistor on the disposable camera circuit. Im sorry if my previous post was unclear

Hi, what difference would it make if I used a 300v .22uF capacitor instead of a 400v one?
What is the purpose of the transistor on the camera circuit? Is it a amplifier?

Thanks in advance
