This all new Wimshurst machine model features a higher level of refinement than our standard economy model. The Vanguard II model Wimshurst machine features larger 11" / 275mm acrylic discs, a nicer laminate base, spray-coat long last sectors, light-touch brushes and a center pier to help support the larger acrylic discs. No assembly required, simply attach the hand crank, begin cranking, and watch in wonder as the sparks fly. Instruction guide and helpful hints are included with each unit. *DON'T FORGET TO ADD AN IONIZATION TUBE FOR A GREAT DEMONSTRATION. Specifications:
Overall Height: 15" / 375mm
Acrylic Disk Diameter: 11" / 275mm
Max. Spark Length: 4" / 100mm
