Prototype Strong-Ovington Demo Apparatus
From the prototype in the shed...
...To the complete apparatus in the living room.
A Christmas present from Frank: A 15,000V 60mA NEW Neon Transformer
(I've never seen a new Neon transformer before...WOW!)
A wax+oil embedded condenser - (2) .032 mfd condensers in series, 20kV rating
8.5" x 11" acetate for the dielectric, aluminum sheets for the plates.
A simple wireless type testing gap - 10mm Tungsten. Terminals are for external gaps...
...such as this 16 series 1/2" Tungsten quenched spark gap. It works really well for a multitude of effects!
