This is most likely the finest production Wimshurst Generator you'll find, our heavy duty Wimshurst Static Electric Generator is an easy to use and powerful high voltage generator. Two
counter-rotating plates about 12" in diameter are supported in two
rigid uprights and belt driven by a small hand crank. The plates are
composed of heavy, high resistance plastic with sectors of aluminum
sheets. Lyden jars ( condensers ) and the aluminum store electricity until
discharged by the electrodes.
The device produces higher currents than a Van de Graaff Generator. Great
for static electricity demonstrations and experiments. The entire unit is mounted on a 15 inch (380mm) x 9 inch (230mm) x 16.5 inch (420mm) base.
In testing the machine we found that with just 2 or 3 turns of the handle, the machine would produce a nice hefty, high current spark around 1.5" long (about 40,000 volts). Turning the crank faster & longer produces more voltage and longer sparks.
