Recently I have not had a lot of time to work on this project, but I have had time to finally record the actual circuit diagram and create a PCB.  I will send off to have the PCB made in a few weeks.  Warning: my schematic and PCB fab skills are not very good, proceed with caution.  For many of the components I just made basic place holders for them, hopefully it can be followed.  I also used an autorouter for about 90% of my traces.

Also the 2nd title that says SCR2 fire is actualy Ballistic Motor.

I should also add that im debating on going back to a single coil design pushing 14KA through its single coil.

Realized today that I didnt add the pullup resistors on the mosfet gates, and ive already sent off for the pcbs, o well, it will be an easy bodge job.

  Are you sure? yes | no
