No-one told me trying to solder a diode to the emitter and base of a transistor would be like trying to have banned with a tiny spider !

The creator should have given us four hands ! What was she thinking ??

I'm having one right now, and a beer. I just got my first Bedini circuit working now i'm going to do long-term battery-testing.

Cheers Matey :)
