    Hello Everyone :)

    Im New, and I have been working on a project using a quartz ignitor from a butane lightor as a power source and making a small arc at the end of the positive and nutral or ground wires. I would like to know if I can step up the voltage by attaching a transformer into the circut? As I sed im newish to transformers and have only a basic understanding of how they work.:D

    You are already dealing with a few thousand volts. Is this another taser project?
