Bob Davis, whom some of you may remember for his high-voltage can crusher, is back at it with this 2KV, 1600A, 1500 μF 10-capacitor discharge bank that can be used to crush cans and, most amusingly IMHO, launch washers high into the air with a sound that really has to be heard to be appreciated. Bob’s video might benefit from a bit of editing; clicking the embedded player above should take you right to the money shot around 4:35. There’s also a good can-crushing right around 5:50.
