Wimshurst Machine-This machine is used for generating static electric charges and causing electric discharges. Relative to Van de Graaff it produces higher current with lower voltage. It consists of two high resistance plastic discs with equally spaced metal sectors. The discs are supported in two rigid upright supports, rotating in opposite directions with a hand crank. Has a system of induced charge collecting brushes, adjustable ball ended electrodes and cylindrical Leyden jar capacitors for obtaining higher potential. This machine will produce substantial opposite charges which are deposited in the capacitors and on metal spheres. A rapid sequence of sparks can be generated by lowering the system's capacitance. It comes mounted on an insulated wooden base. Dimensions: 290 x 290 x 180mm Weight: 500gm
