    Would submerge the circuit in oil (leaving the Spark gaps out) help preventing the arcs across the resistors? Or maybe put It into an open box and cast some insulating resin? Maybe it would work better than painting polyutethane

Or maybe his body is superconductive, like that Indian guy who can hold a wire with one hand and light a bulb with another, although I think that those videos are just parlor tricks as well...

    Hi, i need to consult about insulation of my marx generator. Will be a good idea to use epoxy and submerge it all? I would just skip the spark gaps and the input with the main output. What do you think about it? Thanks for the answer. 🙂

    Would it help, to just have pins on the source side of the gap? To provide a sharp surface for the charge to escape from, and then leave the ball on the load side to provide surface area for the charge to find a path?
