Assembly Instructions

Instructions
The Toepler-Holtz or Voss machine is an impressive device for producing large sparks. With the switch at the bottom which connects the two Leyden jars engaged, the sparks produced are intermittent and loud, even when the electrodes are several inches apart. With the switch open, the sparks are smaller and almost continuous (i.e., they occur within short time intervals). The drive wheel must be turned in only one direction.
