    Guys when he turn on generator arcs starts jumping in tesla coil. Did you see that?

  • ezzy c

    So, considering an arc can piggy back on a flame... If one was to have a torch with a very long flame, like for blowing glass, and it was fixed with a high power tesla coil, or powerful HV generator, could this person ( not me) create an electrical sword of fire? I have a few little electrical discoveries that I would love to see you experiment with. But I've had this idea of an electrified sword of fire since I was a child. Even if an insulated core through the center of the flame is required to avoid charge dissipation at the base of the flame. I don't have the materials and I'd love to see someone shock and burn the shit out of themselves on a project I'd gladly endure the pain to a accomplish if I had the available hardware. You're more equipped for the job... Can it be done? I think so🤔

    Would submerge the circuit in oil (leaving the Spark gaps out) help preventing the arcs across the resistors? Or maybe put It into an open box and cast some insulating resin? Maybe it would work better than painting polyutethane
