Default ultrasonic fogger; water atomizer

I'm new to this forum. I was wondering, after much frustration in google searches, if anyone knows what the circuit for a water fogger is? I know its some sort of ultrasonic generator, but what frequency and what kind of transducer? I know they only cost about 20 bucks, but to make one would be cool.

Looking online, you get a general idea that they are piezoelectric resonators that you can purchase for about $7. I've also found a couple of places that mention 1.7MHz as the frequency of operation.

How comfortable are you with electronics in general? Have you had any experience with ultrasonic transducers?

I don't have any experience with ultrasonic transducers.
