Will a High voltage power supply from a old projector work to power a Jacobs ladder Answered

I have a high voltage lamp driver that i took out of an old projector, I want to know if i wil be able to make a jacobs ladder or plasma globe with it?
It supplies 25kv or 12.5kv on each of the two wires? it was used to power the lamp of the projector and it connected directly with the lamp wires.

Yes that should work. Neon transformers have been used and some of those run at 10kV. This one is running off of 12kv https://www.instructables.com/id/How-To-Make-A-Jacobs-Ladder/
