its nice, but the nst lack the power you need. see how, at the top 3rd of the ladder, the arc ceases to rise smoothly? instead, one side rises, then the other. this is caused by instability of the arc. as it gets longer, it needs more current to sustain itself. although the current does not drop too low for the ladder to work, it causes the arc to become unstable. i recommend a higher amperage supply if you can get one. otherwise, it looks nice.

That is simply beautiful. One day I hope I'll have the time/patience/effort/resources to make something like that.

While this isn't an original concept the craft work and presentation is beautiful....by far the nicest looking jacob's ladder I've seen. Good work!

truly one of the most polished instructables i have seen. If I saw this, I would think that singer was in the ladder business at some point.
Super nifty, I like. Dig the illuminated switches. Ever use neon indicator lamps for such a purpose? They have such a lovely orange glow to them.

Steampunk science toys- full of win. You've clearly put a lot of effort into the presentation, and it really shows. +
