Wimshurst Machine - Premium


The Wimshurst generator consists of two 30 cm discs with equally spaced metallic sections on each plate that rotate in opposite directions past collecting brushes. Metal bristles brush against each wheel. The accumulated charge can then be arced between adjustable spark gap electrodes.

The discs are supported by two rigid uprights and driven by a belt via a hand crank. It has two extra large Leyden jar condensers constructed from Corning glass and aluminum foil. This Wimshurst is mounted on a sturdy Wooden base, stands 41 cm tall, and can generate more than 75,000 volts.
