Made a box for a neon transformer shown earlier (15Kv 60ma). Added couplings to the top of the box, so I can swap out electrodes anytime. The 3 foot electrodes shown will be used to demonstrate electricity for a 5th grade class.

Trying silly shapes with arcs...and since it was just after Valentine's Day...What the heck? I'd play the Doors "light my fire" in the background, but then the RIAA would shoot me (duck). I'd consider miniaturizing this and putting it in a Valentine's Day card, but then my wife would shoot me (duck again). As romantic as chocolates and a candlelit dinner? Perhaps not, but there's something to be said for putting a little mad science into your holidays.
