Mike Chuch's Jacob's Ladder
Four 15kV 60 mA neon sign transformers in Mike Church's ladder provide quite a show!

This is the nicest Jacob's Ladder I've ever seen.
Stainless steel and oak, with handles, and a wrench included to fasten the rails.
It was built by Kermit who works at Southern California Edison's Kern Hydro plant.
It contains a 15kV 60 mA transformer donated by Center Neon Co.
This ladder was donated to the Bakersfield College physics department.
Five stars, Kermit!
