:)audio guru those 1n5408 diodes in my dicksmiths catalouge says they are rated at 3 amps so i dont know where ya got the amps details on them from, as for the diodes well i got the idea of useing three of them from the circuit schematics for the high velocity electromagnetic launcher or ring shooter so i thouth id borrow that and use it for this coil gun gee it sure goes better now anyhow that circuit i posted agers ago to the topic chargeing of capacitor by bakr its in the high voltage stuff section  as for the circuit i used to charge the capacitor with not includeing the modifications here it is

:)the 555 timer and irf540 or 640 or 740 n channel ,mosfet and potentiometers are separate and not on the board so the pins you see are where the wires from the timer and mosfet and potentiometers run to . here is another flyback ill be useing in this latest cap charger for the coilgun  now ive had to replace a section of the circuit board with pvc  as it was broken
