This is my first "ible" so any constructive comments and advice would be helpful. Now for the project.

A lifter is a small device that is suspended midair through the use of ion wind. Ion wind is something I'm assuming you know at least a little bit about, due to the fact that your into HV projects (or you probably wouldn't be here) . But if not, here is an explanation on lifters and how they work. These are very easy and relatively cheap to make.

Step 1: Gather Materials

Here's what you'll need:
- Tape
- Ruler
- String
- X-acto knife etc.
- Scissors
- Super glue
- Aluminum foil
- Balsa wood
- 0.2mm enameled (magnet) wire
- Some spare time
- A HV power source
- (optional) 8mm heat shrink tube
- (optional) cutting mat
<p>How do I get an &quot;HV power source&quot; without being an electrical engineer and having a lot of money and time?</p>
<p>Hi FrenchDavid50</p><p>You can build it very easily from parts which you will find around the house,</p><p>just follow:http: //isparktube.com/zvs-drivers</p><p> for step by step instruction on how to build High Voltage power supply.</p>

Those photos are awfully small - could you upload your original full-size images instead?
im tryin to get them full size, but i cant seem to do it right, plus im on a Linux based system, and im not to familiar with it... but im still tryin, thanks though<br><br>
Where did you get them from, maybe I can help?
i just resized them... publishing now.thanks<br>
Ouch - I didn't mean resize the thumbnails, I meant publish the originals.<br><br>Do you have the originals, or did you google those images?
yea these are all googled, sorry<br>
I think the honourable thing to do would be to unpublish the instructable until you've managed to take your own photos, yes?
at this time i don't have a functioning camera and all the pictures of this project are/were on my phone, my phones whole system crashed on me and i wont have a new one until at least December. once i have it, ill gladly change the photos.lesson learned, store on sd card :)
