This is a Wagner static electricity generator from the begining of the 20th century. This example resides in Tiffin, Ohio at the Seneca County Museum and will be restored to full working order by Casey from www.putschracing.com in 2009. It is used to power early X-ray tubes and for "killer" parlor tricks. This is an example of a Voss machine and is similar to a Wimshurst machine. It has the potential to throw foot long lightning bolts.
