And the... FCC is chill with that
Same thing happened to me! Measuring HV is a color TV, got zapped through a screwdriver I was levering up the anode cap with. 37,000 volts through my right hand and exited through my waist - jumped to the grounded outlet strip on the front of the bench.
Nope. I have no idea how he will do so. Though, FCC is chill with his 40 foot tall (tallest in the world) 200kW coil currently
Dan, welcome to the 37,000 volt club.. haha. No seriously, glad you were okay
FCC is the worst. Why can't I blast LOFI electroswing at 1kW from the university transmitter? amirite
The screwdriver ended up stck in the wall behind me. I guess my arm muscles took on a life of their own at that moment and I threw it backwards. Good times.
LOL been there! Broke a chair once, faffing with a 3.3kv mains transformer.
Dan, that is amazing hahaha
Did you fall out of the chair?
Yep, but the char legs got caught under the desk on my way back!
My hit knocked me to the ground. I was standing over a running car
Good times! :-D
@Jay Bowles Not HV related, but what is your review of this film?
As serious and important as it is to be safe....it is remarkable how many of us start out our journeys the same way......a single shock that makes you respect electric
Speaking of good time, ima bow out, friends
Thanks for stopping by Dayton!
Bye Dayton, thanks for stopping by
Wait a second.......
That was a fun movie.
Maybe we can do film making Hack Chat next time
Never seen it, I will check it out!
lol....I am also a television actor. That was the last film I was in. A fun independent film
Since them i'm 90% youtube.
@ tesla's coil is insane.that tesla coil test
how the hell do you power a tesla coil that does 120 - 200000W /
Right?! Speaking with greg, he built the coil to be fully scalable. So, to make it three times taller (120 feet) he just needs to scale every component up by 3, and all things will still work the same
many hamsters, but they scale nicely
I guess that's not THAT bad
@ 480120,000W = 250A
which still makes me want to vomit thinking about it
Haha. I too would like to know how it is powered. Well folks, I need to return to my 9-5
Jay: Tesla Explorer.. still talking with him?
but it's within the realm of traditional power delivery
I have spoken to Explorere, but it has been a while. He does great work!
@Jay Bowles throw a link out to your channel. I want to go distract myself from my 9-5
OK, thanks Jay - I was just about to call time. Thanks so much for coming on today, we really appreciate it. And thanks to everyone for coming.
Jay: I have adviced him on various tricks.. to improve the systems
Thanks Jay, great chat!
Thanks everyone. Stay safe, keep experimenting!
Teaser for week after next - @LesWright will be here to talk about his homebrrew lasers. We'll have lotas of HV talk then too, I'll bet
Next week is Adam Zeloof talking about mechanical engineering
Thanks all - I'll post a transcript soon
