I read somewhere that an individual used an 50-70 Kv. ignition coil to fire a maggie. Is this possible? If so how would it be
wired and would it need the same type cap used in a microwave. Also read about someone who used an aircraft strobe to fire one. ANY help (both pro's and cons) would be Greatly appreciated!

RE: odd magnetron power supply

however you do it, be careful, not only can you loose the family jewels so to speak, you can also loose your eye-sight. you won't know about either until long afterwards.

A magnetron is not a toy, inspite of the advice one finds on the internet.

RE: odd magnetron power supply

Thanks for the heads up.  I am commited to proper shielding!!
