    The other day I was at the local thrift store and found in the
    electronic stuff the base unit for a plasma globe. I got it for 25
    cents. At home I took it apart and looked over the Eletronic past ,all
    seamed to be good. I was wondering if it was possible use the part
    from the unit to make a JACOBS LADDER. From what I have seen on the
    net the eletronic component are the same. Both need a flyback
    transformer and a couple power tranistors. The rest of the compments
    that are on the board of the Palsa Glode seem to be for a osolater to
    vary the freq. of the voltage. This I have seen in so schematic for a
    "climding spark". In my opionin It should work. Shouldn't it??

    Go to the local dump, or to the back lot of the local oil heat service
    place. Get the ignition transformer from a scrapped oil burner. It
    will put out about 10kV ac. from 110vac.

    Be careful.
