Peanut butter not so great as a conductor. Yes, they really did check.

It looks to be ~120VAC as the neutral conductor is connected to the ground wire.

Make a simple transformer in ya mum's basement and use 5000 amps to melt your old end wrenches. Not sure how to incorporate this in the mousetrap gig. May need suppression wires.

I have a little-bitty, "Boxwood", bush out on our corner by the island I am trying to grow, but the dogs are pis*ing on it so it is kinda BROWN!!

I maybe should rig onna these up?

But I figure the little old Ladies would have a fit when their lap dogs pis*ed on it!

He, He!!

I was told this old story about a dog that pis*ed on the water pump in the town's park. Well a couple of the old men rigged this up and one hit and the dog passed blood for a bit!! It NEVER wet on the pump again! They laughed!! Atlanta, MO in the '50's or so(??).. Dammed dog would daily make his rounds, but got stopped!

Not 5000 amps. Those conductors are only rated for about 400 amps.

Sorry just busy and forgot to post a link I was having trouble posting.

I was trying to post an image of Audi's new 4.0Liter diesel electric turbocharger that spins to 70,000 rpms in less than a half a second to eliminate turbo lag in lower rpm s on engines.

I think this may be the future of even straight turbocharging as inter-cooling does not seem to be a problem.

In any event sorry for the link screw up. If I or someone here can find and post a link here it would be helpful and put my damaged post back in conversation.
