Jacob's Ladder

Recommended Posts


I decided to put together a Jacob's Ladder lately but am a little bit bewildered with the Flyback Transformer which I have taken out of an old monitor.

2 of the wires are clearly the high voltage coil's output (ie ground and say 20kV). There is another wire with a rubber seal over it which I assume is another ground connection. And then there are about 10 other connection pins on the base of the transformer, but I've no idea what they do. I can only assume they must be the input.

Anyone have any idea what these pins are and if this FBT can be used for my Jacob's ladder?
