  • LOTS of VAST capacitors (can be obtained from lots of CRTs degauss circuits)
  • Hi-voltage generators (photographic flashes, single-use cameras, degauss circuits)
  • Medium-size relays that are able to handle thousands of volts
  • Slotted optical switches (CZ: optické závory) for multi-staged coilgun
  • Wire
  • Barrel
  • Nails (and similar “ammo”)
  • SCRs (Tyristors or power IGBTs) - Relays are not such powerful and most of energy is wasted at their contacts
