I have to put on a demo of this fractal burning at the guild meeting and I thought I should have all the wires and the transformer covered up for safety. Along with building the box for it, I made some electrodes like I just saw in a video yesterday. One is weighted to stay down on the part and the other is a wand made of PVC so I can easily start a pattern anywhere without stopping to unplug and relocate the clips . The last shots show it working on a scrap piece of maple burl that was cracked. Now I’m ready to go!!
The second shot is the top of the box with a little burn pattern in it. There are lots of holes in the box to keep the transformer cool.
The box is made from any scrap plywood the was the right dimension for the parts needed. It is painted black and the top and rocking electrode are coated with clear lacquer.
