The coil winding fits well to operation on a 18650 LiIo 3.7V
If you want to have it fancier, use a stepdown controller and operate the machine with 2 18650 LiIo (Attention only use protected cells)
My coil run @ 0.6A at 3.7V so the machine runs fast. (Avoid overheating the coil).
There are some adjustments to make to the “ignition timing”, but that makes the machine so interesting.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
