How to Build an Electo Pounce Answered

Was looking to see if anyone has an idea how to make one of these electro pounce machines. At $300 new I'd much rather make one but don't know where to start.
Any electrical peep out there have an idea, please let me know.

here's a reference of what the machine is - you tube has videos of it in action.

You can make one with a neon transformer which puts out high voltage with low amperage. You can use a brass welling rod inserted into a wooden dowel for the electrode. I used one like this and the negative charged wall section was covered with a copper screen.

Look up any of the microwave oven transformer (MOT) welder ibles. I think you need to still have a metal ground plate in back of your stencil material. You are letting the welding arc burn a hold in the stencil. It would seem to be maybe a finer tip and you don't actually touch the metal to weld anything together. Welding is dangerous. Good luck.

It'll be some kind of high-voltage-type welder, that just burns holes in things...
The cord/wire will be consumed in the process.

The tips actually look like basketball pump needles.
