Yes, a simple flat iron that would be used to iron clothes. Hot 120V
to one side of iron, the other side of the iron to one rod and the
other rod to neutral. The arc current is limited by the resistance of
the flat iron.
I haven't thought about the electrical noise such a thing must
generate but the light is quite intense - like an arc welder.
I just used strips of metal mounted perpendicular to a piece of wood
with one end wrapped around the rod and the other screwed to the wood.
For control, I attached wood clothes pins to the upright portion of
the metal strip.
