    Here's a zapper I found stuck in an old erector set I got at a garage sale. I don't know where it came from but it looks better thought out than some of the other zappers I've seen. Everything’s straightforward except for a couple of transformers. He calls them:

    T1 White Dot Inverter Transformer, and (Electronics Goldmine #N1703)
    T2 Red Trigger Transformer (Electronics Goldmine #N1700)

    Electronics Goldmine no longer stocks the parts, and there's no other identifying data for the transformers. Does anybody have an idea on what little transformers would work here?

    I'm attaching the circuit, the parts list and the circuit explanation. They're pretty interesting.
