    Welcome to the PF.

    Sorry, given your lack of experience, it would be very dangerous for you to be making your own high voltage power supply out of an old TV flyback transformer. Those things can be lethal when used incorrectly. You should also be focusing on low-voltage projects, until you gain more experience building circuits. Thread is closed.
