I want to use a microwave magnetron another application but

Customer Question

I want to use a microwave magnetron for heating another application but by-passing the complex electronics built into the standard ovens.
I have the magnetron (s) and Panasonic microwave inverters and have a circuit I put together from a utube hacking forum, they got it to work.
I have limited electronic knowledge, I have wired & rewired the circuit several times but I cannot get the circuit to switch on.
The control side uses an optical coupler to guarantee isolation from the 4000 or so volts the inverter puts out.
I could email the circuit to someone for checking if it would help. or if someone already has a working circuit diagram that would be great.
