A tragedy to say the least, Gene, this is a silent killer that strikes so fast there is no warning after it is switched on.

The problem I see is that it does produce uncontrollable fascinating designs that attract people who have no knowledge or respect for the power of high voltage electricity. It would be nice if it had never been marketed as a form of "art" work.
Just my opinion,
Herb

That is something that has never appealed to me, including the final patterns. Never knew it could be fatal tho, none of the utube videos I have seen on it (not many), never mentioned that.

I think that is a little on the conservative side, Gene. I read they started around 7KV and went up to 15KV.
The homade ones from microwave transformers start at around 7KV ,the one I had was 12KV.
@JOAT
Theo, This the 4th one I have seen documented on the internet as causing a death.

Better safe than sorry. I'm glad he did, too. Glad you won't be trying it either.

I watched a members video doing it on a coffee table , and that got me intrigued. Although I work around power everyday , Iím still intimidated by it and would prefer to die a more natural death .
So I think Iíll pass

I think there many other safer ways to be creative with wood. I guess you could call home brain surgery an art too if you can find someone willing to let you do it to them.
