I am new to this newsgroup, I am typically a poster on rec. pyro or metalworking, but I have been working on a new project. I am trying to make an ignition coil for my new turbing engine, and I am quite terrible at reading electronic designs. I know that I will be needing a 555 timer, and an ignition coil. The input into the coil should be12 volts. I have built a neef type vibrator switch, which made quite a nice spark when used as a relay to put the 12 volts into the ignition coil. But it was very unreliable, and I believe that a 555 timer should be the best route to go, but I am quite new to electronics and have become lost with all the complicated 555 timer circuits shown online. I just need something simple that will trigger a pulse of 12 volts to the ignition coil.
Can aybody help me out?
Thank you, Bob
