But nothing like this one

I used straws and a reel of foil, and an olde computer monitor

This man seems to have gone a bit further with his research

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

I started wearing rubber gloves around that time (and still put them on for special occasions).

The LOPT voltages in a computer monitor can be used for these experiments, but I was really hoping to blag the one out of the Panasonic back projector TV, these were rated at 42-45kV.
