How to build your own zapper. An illustrated guide

Friday, February 01 2002 - Filed under: General

Read the detailed original plan from Dr. Clark's homepage:

A really cheap $10 zapper, which includes shipping costs, and has been approved and tested can be ordered here:
* Alas, there have been some problems with delivery of these zappers. Please read

This is what you need..
You can get this stuff from every RadioShack or electronics store. The #-numbers are radioshack part numbers. You can order from the USA from
The copper pipe and the bolts can be bought from every hardware store.

9 volt battery
9 volt battery clips: Radio Shack # 270-325

Black plastic Project Box Radio Shack # 270-1809

On off switch: Radio Shack # 275-624A

low current red LED: RS# 276-044
No-Picture, sorry

.0047 uF capacitor: RS# 272-130 (code 472)
.01 uF capacitor: RS# 272-1065 (103)
No picture, but they should look like this:

555 CMOS timer chip: RS# 276-1723
8 pin wire wrapping socket for CMOS chip: RS# 276-1988
3.9K Ohm resistor: RS# 271-1123
1K Ohm resistor: RS# 271-1321
(left to right, top to bottom)

2 pieces of ?'' copper pipe, cut to 4 inches long each

one pack of 14'' alligator clip leads RS# 278-1156C
* Only two needed when you'll be soldering

two packs of Microclip test jumpers: RS# 278-017
* Not needed when you'll be soldering

2 Bolts 1/8'' diameter, 2'' long with 4 nuts and washers.

The instructions are on this site:

Make you sure you align the chip the right way in the socket:

Some info on reading capacitor codes:
More to come

Detailed info no the LM555 CMOS Timer chip:

You can choose the frequency yourself by doing the following calculation:
time (microseconds) = 0.693 (Ra + 2Rb) * C

In this design it's: 0,693 * (1000+2*3900) * 0,0047 = 9,77 microseconds
1000/9,77 = 34 kHz

Update Feb 3rd 2002
I've finished the zapper last friday, and it was a lot more work than I expected. In the end I finished it using the alligator clips, but it was a real mess.. The LED would turn on and off because of the bad connections.

So I teared it all apart and used my new-bought solder iron to get a more reliable solution.. In the end it all works.. Except that they gave me the wrong capacitor for the 2nd time. They gave me a 0.001 uF capacitor instead of the needed 0.0047 uF capacitor (factor 4.7 difference)..

I used the formula shown above and that shows that:
0,693 * (1000+2*3900) * 0,001 = 6.0984 microseconds
1000/6.0984 = 164 kHz. This means it's still within the range of allowed frequencies, but I think the 30kHz version might be more effective..

I think I'll build another one (a lot faster than the first one I hope) that does run on 30kHz..

I've been zapping for three days now and I'm not sure if I'm seeing results.. Perhaps the gas production in my intestines has decreased a bit.. That would be wonderful.. But I'm not sure yet.. Let's wait a few more days before I give definite results..

Anyway, this is what my first version looks like (showing that I'm a real amateur, but what the heck, it works !):

And a close-up:

What you see here is all electronics parts that are used..
On the bottom of the lid (inside the box) all the wiring is done. I've done this by soldering short wires, because the alligator lead alternative is not very nice..

I'll also build the easier version of the zapper (without the led), because that one is a lot easier to build..

More to come soon..
For the next one I make, I'll add a photo for every construction step..
