    Quite seriously, from your post, you should not attempt to do this by yourself. You can injure or kill yourself when using 220 VAC. An SCR needs a proper firing circuit when used on the AC mains. Instructing you via this forum would be dangerous. Take if from somebody who has worked on thse circuits -please find somebody with experience in this area and do not attempt to do this yourself.
