Re: mixmaster motor!


Probably it would not do.  Most rotary spark gaps use a disk 8 to 12 inches
in diameter.  When these are spinning at high rpm, they have considerable
wind resistance, and require more power than your blender can furnish.  Go
for a used vacuum cleaner motor or some other more powerful motor.
