So back to our Repulsion Coil. This is a great little project that will allow you to fire a aluminum pipe section 3' into the air at the push of a button and let you defeat gravity and hover the same pipe section in thin air.
The project is in a used book I found back in the 90's. "Science Experimenter" was published by ARCO in 1964. It is full of great projects for the electrical hobbyist. You can build a small 50,000 volt Van de Graaff Generator or an advanced Tesla Coil. Think K-Tel invented the clap your hands on-off switch? Think again Walter B. Ford has plans here for one, long before K-Tel came out with theirs lol.
I have probably a dozen project manuals like this dealing with electrical, chemistry and physics experiments for the home hobbyist. They are small enough that I hope to scan and share many of them in the future, this one included.
