    I recently "discovered" leyden jars (from Adam Savage from the
    Mythbusters) and I became very interested, i have built and few and
    found some sites:, is a good one. I
    was wondering if anyone knows of any other type things like this;
    building static generators, leyden jars...etc. if anyone has any links
    as to building some "stuff" like this or anyting close, preferably from
    home materials, it would be GREAT.

    think they are still around, or Jamesco.

    These guys are totally into HV mostly Tesla coils but I'm sure if you
    posted your question there they would have a ton of URLs.
