Reviewer: Drew Shock from Olympia, WA United States  
We have a lot of fun experimenting with this machine. Sometimes we turn it just to hear the static POP!

Top Quality Product!!! December 20, 2014
Reviewer: William Fox from Milford, OH United States  
This product was received two days after purchase and worked right out of the box.  Machine exhibited flashover between sectors when the discharge electrodes were set greater than 3.5" apart.  After cleaning the discs with window cleaner and allowing them to dry, the machine easily produced 4" sparks while under non-optimal conditions.  I suspect dust was the cause of the flashoverThis is my 5th Wimshurst machine and far outperforms all the others.  If you're looking for a quality, high performance machine at an extremely reasonable price, then this is the one to buy!  Very pleased.  Thank-you!!!
