Step 5: Power it Up!

Carefully, wearing non grounded shoes, holding non-conductive rods to push the switch, press the switches and hold them. Don't look directly at the arc without eye protection, it is close to the brightness of a welder. You should now have a spectacular arc to show off to your friends and family!

a cool thing to try with this is clamp a penny to one output and a nickle or some other metal to the other then make the arc.... half of te arc will be one color the other half a different color alsotr somthing gold plated if i remember correctly you get a bright white core whit a bluish sorta flame the pennies will be greenish ... lol we did this in my electronics class in high school :D
