Hi, Phil. You have a clever solution, as always. Do you think resistance welding using an old capacitor would have allowed a solid copper-to-steel connection? If I wanted to make a reed switch from scratch, I think that would be fun to try, anyway.If I need a reed switch, however, I'll probably buy one from Digi-Key, which offers several models for under $1.
I enjoyed your project video, and wondered who performed the music you selected? I liked it, and would like to buy some of it.

Another excellent project (you're quite the professional). What you call a Hooey Stick I always called a Gee Haw Whimmy Diddle. A quick web search also turned up The Hui Machine, one of several names for the device as it's described in this link to the Harvard Math Department: http://www.math.harvard.edu/~knill/pedagogy/huimachine/index.html.
This has some good construction ideas which I will consider using in my own projects.Your 600W claim is a fantasy.
Not only do you have clever ideas here, Christine's birthday slide show was a real treat. Thank you for sharing it!

Whoa, MichaelT177! Why attack the author, who generously took the trouble to show us another interesting way to package old PC supplies. This repackaging is extremely common among home experimenters in need of bench power sources, and darthwolf has a good looking design. (Thanks to the author)
