    i had an old plasma globe that i was given. it was made in 1986 and it only made small purple bolts off the ceter ball. i beleve the gas had escaped from the globe. so i took it apart. what i want to atempt to do with the controlerboard now is to connect it to an old laser tube i have. the laser tyube requires 10KV DC with aprox a 50 ohm resistor. will the plasma circuit run this? and if so is the output of the circuit + or - and at what voltage. AC or DC? if AC can i just add a diode to it and make DC?
