Could you put a $ price on the disc you destroyed (cool), Are you getting burning-PVC insulation in the arc-video? (protect your eyes man)

not much value to me obviously, i messed up some game file and when i tried to reinstall the disks were too worn down. by that time the combination of b1942+expansions+bfv was only 10 dollars so i grabbed that and set these old disk into storage for a time (to kill(them)) it was a tough cd i bet it was going over 30,000rpm really had some power to it when it exploded

what do you mean burning pvc insulation

admittedly i was just wearing "uv protection" sunglasses as i stared strait into that arc the entire time but i never got the slightest hint of a burned in image or any sort of eye pain still not a good idea i know. now i got myself a  #10 welding filter ill tape it onto something (ive almost got a mot powered stick welder going)

The arcs are big, I wonder whether this is just ionised air or whether there's a smoke-component which is helping to give those impressive results?

dunno its only 4kv but at around 1.5 amps, i think its the heat the arc generates that allows it to be stretched.  a fair bit of that wire is being vaporised though. hard to see in the video but the arc is pretty green on the half thats coming off of the wire(as in not coming off the chicken stick) and copper burns green right

 From the looks of it, having used an arch welder for quite a few years, I would say there is a lot of smoke and fumes being ignited in that first video.   My 110 A welder never created anything that looked remotely like that.

I'm thinking there's a smoke-to-plasma thing going on there?
