Curious Minds Did You Know: The high voltages produced by The Wimhurst Machine made X-ray experiments much easier in it's time as it was extremely difficult to reach these voltages beforehand.

The Wimshurst Machine is one of the most iconic electrostatic machines. Like a Van de Graaff generator, the Wimshurst Machine utilises a build-up of static charge to then produce a spark of electricity.
This kit allows you to build your own fully functional high voltage Wimshurst Machine out of sturdy cardboard, aluminium foil, PVC and wooden rods. The kit features a limited current for safe experiments, with the sparks produced being up to 70,000V and 5cm long.

M.A. P.

Interesting and absorbing to build.
The construction is a little flimsy as the drive belt tension causes the driving drums to distort, sending the disks out of alignment.
Must try harder.
