I put up my new Kitty Litter Transformer to take on some Steel Wool with some VERY bright results.  I've got a bunch of chemicals I'll be passing high-voltage, high current through.  This was just for giggles.  Had a tiny bit of magnesium inside the copper terminal but the heat was not high enought to set it off.

No one should ever try any of these things at home.  I am an idiot.

I mean your average OGer can't even be bothered to write more than a sentence. I do what I can.

It'd be fun to do a HV cookout. Roast up some chickens in 10 seconds and see how they taste. :)

I WOULD NOT give enough info to build this on the OG but as a nerd I'm curious of the basic set up. If it is made with kitty litter I would think it is some sort of wet cell?

For the last several years some poor retired lady has been watching blinding bright lights coming out of dhuges kitchen window in the middle of the night.

Nobody believes her.

The kitty litter box is just for lols and because it's a perfect plastic container for some MOTs and capacitors in mineral oil.

That's pretty badass. I remember when I was in high school I put a halo shaped CFL bulb in the school microwave along with a potato and it lit up the room pretty bright before one of the teachers saw it and flipped out. I wish I never grew out of doing that kind of thing.

Maybe do that outside where fumes aren't an issue?

I wear a P100 respirator, welding goggles and have a ventilation system you can hear running in the background.  I'm an idiot but not stupid.
