2000 Volt Washer Launcher

Pretty impressive… this guy should build a coil gun using that capacitor bank.

Maybe I’m just a safety nazi, but I don’t think regular eye glasses and a poke stick is adequate for making damn sure you don’t get hurt.

If that were my setup, id be remotely detonating it from around a corner at the very least.  I also wouldn’t have the power all connect up to it while I was in the setup process.

You gotta love the sound the washer makes at around 4:30.  As far as i’m concerned it could have just as easily shot strait into his body rather than going straight up into the air… yep, WAY too risky.

Well, gos-se, when you said “washer”, I envisioned a very large, typically white, appliance.

That said, that man is out of his everloving gourd. I would not come near that device without full gloves, an apron, a full face shield, and someone holding a rope wrapped around my waist. But that is just me.

Jeeez, hes really not trying hard enough to re-enforce any stereotypes about engineers is he? LOL

@ Linoge Tell me about it. Im terrified of my driver door on my car due to the consistent and large static discharge I get when I touch the ground then the door. You would never get me close to that thing, even attired with a mountain of PPE.
