Hey, no worries jbot, didn't mean for that to come off angry or snotty. Just got really frustrated with this coil last night. I think you are right about the 30-40v thing... Can't really regulate if you're not over the output voltage haha
Michael, good idea. I'll grab an incandescent today and see if that does it. Someone quoted me 50w on this coil, but it's not listed anywhere I can find. I'm going to reduce the load and drop one of the caps - will post back with results.
