  • How to Make a Lichtenberg Burner With a Microwave Transformer

    The only difference the wattage will make is how in the speed of the burn. Higher wattage = hotter & faster burn.

    I realize I'm a bit late in the game with my input, but I found GTO15 at my local Lowe's hardware. I've also made one of these using a cheap set of jumper cables I got from Harbor Freight.

  • Slayer Exciter Circuit (Poor Man's Tesla Coil)

    So I managed to snap my mag wire about 250 turns in. Can I solder the ends and continue on?

    Simple Copper Plating

    If you're having trouble procuring the copper sulfate, you can make your own copper acetate by mixing hydrogen peroxide and distilled white vinegar 50/50 in a glass container, microwaving it until it's around 110 Fahrenheit and then dropping some copper objects into it. Swirl it around a bit and once it turns light blue, remove the copper pieces and you're good to go.**NOTE: The items you put into the vinegar/peroxide solution need to be as pure copper as possible. I recommend a copper scouring pad. Just make sure it's real copper and not copper plated. It'll ruin your acetate.

    I changed out the ten turn pot for a 28 turn smaller variant, also I used a 24v wall wart power supply in lieu of a battery pack.

    Replaced the batteries with a 24v power supply and the ten turn knob style potentiometer with a 28 turn hole through type.

    Actually, I think I've figured it out. The volt meter I got online was faulty I believe.So the difference between yours and mine, is I used a 28 turn pot, and hooked it up to a 24v 750ma wall wart, since I'm using this for electro plating I didn't need it portable

    Sorry for the poor diagram on the board, I covered the back in hot glue to insulate the circuits. Also, no worries about the length of time to reply. I realize this instructable is a little over 3 years old and honestly didn't expect a response. Thanks very much for still monitoring the comment section!
