The Xray-power source for the 100$ scanner version.
Made of two car ignition coils, which you can even get for free when you´re lucky.

I connencted them parallel (in reverse) to double the voltage. It is driven by a power mosfet.

I read some nasty flame-comments about this project, regarding the "100$"-label :-D
YES, this version WILL cost at max 100$. The other version with the commercial x-ray source is an additional bonus, but of course I want to make this project replicable for everyone.
