Question Buzz coil help

I need some help on putting together a Bozzcoil. What will happen when you wire a 2mfd cap across the coil terminals instead of using a .5 to 1mfd cap and a 500 to 1000 ohm resistor. I bought one like this it seems to work okay but before I put myself a couple more together I want to know if that will work longterm . Go easy on me I don,t have much electronic knowledge. Thanks in advance . HARRY'S is great, people not online don't know what they're missing.

John:

If you're talking about a Model "T" Ford coil or similar, they need about 0.22 microfarad at 600 Volts for a condenser.

If you're talking about one of the arrangements where you use an automotove relay as a buzzer to drive a regular ignition coil, use whatever gives a nice buzz on the relay. I like the idea of the larger capacitor and resistor. This should make it easier on the relay contacts.

I think for the relay buzzer capacitor, I'd go for one with a 50 Volt or higher rating.

On the auto ignition coil side of the arrangement, just use a regular auto condenser.

Take care - Elden

Smile Re: Buzz coil help

Thanks alot, I'm using a coil and relay, The one I bought just has a 2.0 cap wired in, it sure packs a lot more wallop than the T buzzcoil, I hope it holds up, even with all new parts it's pretty cheap John
