  1. YouTube Science! Part 7 - Wimshurst Machine!

    With its spinning disks and satisfying sparks, the Wimshurst machine is an excellent addition to any mad lab!

    This is a real simple (and small) version pretty much anyone can build:


    This gives you the basic idea. If you want to make it larger, add a motor, etc., building this little one will give you the knowledge you need!
