555 timer chip guy:
I have been wondering how to steppe up 12 to 120vAC I have herd that you can use a transformer but need to know how to use one please help. :-[

Admin:
where are you getting 12VAC from?!?

120VAC sounds dangerous . . .

oh, and just know that if you step up voltage, you will also end up stepping down current . . .

I am getting it from a 12v power inverter that I built that runs off of a 12 amp 12volt battery and current dose not matter for this application.

lol, admin only current is dangerous, you can get millions of volts(i think) but if you get more then 50 milliamps you will die.
