Wood workers warning.


NEVER use a Microwave transformer. It WILL KILL! YOU ARE WARNED


ALWAYS wear protective equipment when operating a Lichtenberg machine! ALWAYS!!!



ALWAYS use wire that is RATED for the voltage produced by the Lichtenberg machine. Look for GTO or better wire having silicone insulation. The AC Transformer regulates the percentage of AC voltage to the Neon Transformer. Lesser voltage for thinner wood stock.
