www.mechanicalmashup.tvI have had a few careers so far, soldier, school teacher, arborist, millwright. I love change and I love learning.
Intro: DIY taser in flashlight
Don't build this if you are a dummy and want to go around shocking people. You will be charged with assault at the very least. Don't try it on anyone with a pacemakeror possible heart condition.I built this taser for my diy video podcast. (check out my shirt!) I thought I would make an instructable to enter in the flashlight contest. The design I used gives a jolt of1200 volts which I promise you can really feel! In the video we have an exclusive interview with Geoff Desmoulin from Spike TV's show "Deadliest Warrior" where hetalks about the science and effects of tasing people.Please check out my otherinstructables
Step 1:Materials
The shopping list is on thedownloadable pdf. The only things not included there are: 9v battery, 9v batt connector, housing (mine was a flashlight) copper circuit board, asmall amount of wire and a switch.Total cost in parts should be around $30Tools required are:drill1/32" , 3/64" drill bits ( I also used a larger bit for mounting the switch but the size will depend on your switch)soldering iron and solderwire strippers and snipscopper etching kitSome tapea clothes ironI used an angle grinder with a zip disk to cut the circuit boardIf you don't know how to solder, check out this guide:http://www.instructables.com/id/Soldering/

If you don't know how to etch copper, here are a few good instructables, I used the methods described in the last one.http://www.instructables.com/id/Sponge-Ferric-Chloride-Method-Etch-Circuit-Bo/ http://www.instructables.com/id/The-Saltwater-etch-process/ http://www.instructables.com/id/Etching-a-circuit-with-toilet-bowl-cleaner/ http://www.instructables.com/id/Stop-using-Ferric-Chloride-etchant!--A-better-etc/ 
Image Notes
1. Don't print this image out because the scale will be off. click on the download link at the top of the page.
Step 2:Making the board
Thedownloadable pdf filehas a transfer image in the bottom left corner. You need this printed in toner on acetate (ie: a laser printer or a photocopier onto atransparency). ink jet printers will not work! Do the printing on maximum darkness to get as much toner on as possible.You will notice that the word is printed backwards. This is to help you, when you transfer the image with an iron you will be able to read the word. Heat an iron betweenfull and 3/4 full and while you are waiting for it to heat up, clean your copper circuit board with steel wool. try not to get any fingerprints on the copper as the oils willinterfere. Tape the transfer to the board on one side only. this will allow you to peel it off when you think you are done and place it back exactly where it was if you arewrong. Place a piece of regular paper on top of the acetate to keep it from melting and press the iron evenly down. If you press too hard the toner can squish and bleed.When you are done you may still need to touch up the transfer with a magic marker or a bit of paint.Again, there are tons of great instructables on etching so I will not try to compete. check one of the links in the intro if you need to know how to do it.On our handy dandy pdf there is a hole template. tape this on top of the copper side of the board. Use a small punch or even a finishing nail to gently center punch theholes. Grab a drill and carefully drill your holes. If you are having trouble finding the tiny bits, check out the dremel section of your local hardware store. The larger holesare for the transistor. Check to see if the transformer fits properly, I left a lot of copper in that area in case the leads on your transformer did not match mine. Drillaccordingly.Populate the circuit board with the components. Again, that great pdf file shows where everything goes. Then solder it all together. The guide linked in the intro will helpyou if you need it.
