I’ve spent the last week working on the damaged high voltage section of the power supply. I’ve had some progress, but it just isn’t functioning properly.
I’m sure with some more time, I’ll get it right, but quite frankly, I’m burned out.
Without a functioning power supply, I can really go no further.
It would be great if I could just order up a replacement part, but we all know that isn’t going to happen.
So, after nearly a year of diligent effort, I’m calling it quits.
Maybe some day I’ll be able to find a junker that I can grab a scrap supply from, and I’ll be refreshed and in the mood to pick it back up. Until then, it’s going to collect dust in my basement.
As I find time, I’ll still formalize my notes to share the information I’ve learned (I now have a bunch about the power supply I can share).
If someone wants the current prototype to play around with, let me know.
UPDATE: Project is back on.
