Jacobs Ladder at 18 volts and using around 6 amps at peak, while the arc is at its largest. I flicked my finger in it earlier, just wanted to feel what its like.
It was different to what I expected, It wasn’t a shock, more like, very quick vibrations that grip hold of you and makes you tense and pull away. Strange feeling yet oddly attracting.
Hypnotic. Is it OK to look at these arcs for long periods, I don’t know but hope it is because this is so much better than TV!
My exciter coil circuit. After watching several videos on Youtube I decided to create my own slayer exciter. I am a complete novice but think I have found the perfect hobby for me, playing with electronic components is so much fun as long as you can cope with the fails.
