Well I have been making CS for a while now. Still perplexed why when I have the resistor in the CS circuit the light does not come on even when I touch the electrodes together. I just leave it out unless it should not glow except when the current becomes higher than normal during end of CS generation? Does yours come on when you touch them together? I was also reading about making CS on a circuit that constantly reverses polarity. Could you make good CS thru the other jack(blood electrifier side? Also, when I cut on the electrifier it starts out on the highest setting and makes me jump out of my seat. Which wires do I need to switch to start it off in lowest setting? Thanks for all your help.
