Need a Small Cheap Power Supply for a Spark Gap
« on: March 29, 2017, 07:48:24 pm »
Does anyone know of a small cheap battery operated device that produces a current that will bridge a gap of, say, half an inch to an inch. It should be small enough that it could be used as a decorative addition to a prop or costume piece. High voltage/low amperage.
