    I made one of them years ago. I used an oil furnace transformer (puts out 10,000 volts) and a couple of metal rods.

Looks like something you would see in Dr. Frankensteins lab lol My question is what is it used for..i have to go to work like in 5 min..so need to finish getting ready so no time to google lol...

    Re: jacobs ladder

    mac cool vid. i get what your saying about it being like an ion cannon, however this would dispurse at probably higher rate although its probably ten times more dangerous. lol

    Yes. More dangerous. Get hit by it and it will knock you on your rear. I know from experience. :)

    Train...All the old Frankenstein movies used a Jacob's Ladder in the lab.

    anna some researchers believe that ghosts manifest off negatively charged particles called ions..the jacobs latter disperses high amounts of these ions into the air thus theoretically helping spirits to manifest.

    I use it to decorate my secret lab of course. :twisted:

    a neon light transformer(removed from your favorite beer sign) and a couple copper rods can surely knock you over, let me tell you....but they look cool and make lots of ozone...

    We should test this as an ion dispersal tool...

    They're kind of noisy though.
