Wimshurst Machine, Superior


This traditional electrostatic charge generator consists of two parallel transparent discs supported on rigid uprights. Each disc has a number of radial aluminium segments and are driven in opposite directions by hand wheel and belt. The electrostatic charge on aluminium segments is collected by combs mounted on either end of the discs and stored in the two leyden jars. When the potential difference between the jars is sufficiently high. A spark will flow between the adjustable discharging spheres.
