especially if you spray some water on it prior to operation. You
could make a 2-3 foot dia version of this for a small or med nst powered coil.
WOW that is awesome!!! How does a motor sitting on top of the toroid
not get fried?"
How about just an oversize "Z" spinner - don't know if there's
any official name but Z-shaped gadget with sharp ends balanced on a
pivot in the center? Biggest one I've made is about 4" but gives
similar effects on a small scale. Maybe a much bigger one on a
high-powered coil would also work. The pictures are great!
