      secondary coil and 10 KVA power supply in operation. It covers a
      wide area of related high voltage experiments and techniques.
      (Jacob's Ladder, RF choking, spark gaps, critical coupling, etc.)
      Due to the dangerous nature of this work I cannot be responsible
      for the safety of life, limb, or property should anyone choose
      to, or attempt to, reproduce any of the equipment or experiments
      featured on the video. To obtain a copy: send a blank, high
      quality, VHS video tape; a first class postage pre-paid, self
      addressed mailer; and $10.00 US. I will happily trade tapes.
