Ignition Coil Driver




The circuit uses a 555 to send a square wave to the base of a 2N3055 transistor.
Everything is mounted inside a medium sized project box. Single row sockets are used to make a quick connector to change out the timimg capacitor giving a wider fequency selection for experimentation.
