I had a lot of fun doing these experiments about 12 years ago. I ended on some conclusions. Straight DC is okay, but when you get to playing around with pulsed DC, you can really go crazy. I ramped my voltage up to about 5KV and was able to adjust my frequency to about 1-2 kHz and able to adjust the duty cycle as I saw fit. Last set of toying with it was to use pure water with no electrolyte, and having a resistance monitoring system to automatically adjust the duty cycle based on water quality. And that's when I reached the end of my skill set. I'll hit it back up when I learn to code.

It looks like a lot of us will be working or studying from home for a bit and I thought that some DIY Desk designs might be helpful. These are easier and faster than our typical projects and only require 2 basic power tools a circular saw and a cordless drill. A random orbit sander is helpful and we used one but it isn't essential. This video is not sponsored but our friends at DIYhaipinlegs.com are offering a special discount. DIYHairpinLegs is offering their raw steel hairpin legs at cost + overhead (40% off).
Am I a weird person for saying that the design makes me incredibly happy? I've always loved the super futuristic designs of some of the concept cars that get previewed, but to actually see something that's going into production that looks like it was pulled from 50 years in the future makes me so full of glee!
