  • I have a funny feeling most f his electrocutions are at low power and are for giggles only... Unless he's some sort of super-human with an extremely non conductive body? Or maybe his body is superconductive, like that Indian guy who can hold a wire with one hand and light a bulb with another, although I think that those videos are just parlor tricks as well...

  • Hi, i need to consult about insulation of my marx generator. Will be a good idea to use epoxy and submerge it all? I would just skip the spark gaps and the input with the main output. What do you think about it? Thanks for the answer. 🙂

    Ladislav DaniLadislav Dani4 päeva tagasi
  • Would it help, to just have pins on the source side of the gap? To provide a sharp surface for the charge to escape from, and then leave the ball on the load side to provide surface area for the charge to find a path?
