Well, I watched the video, looked at the pics also. The fan at the gap
looks really strong! Certainly a good thing. I'm not so sure about the
sphere electrodes however. You setup is simple so it might be worth
trying out a couple 1" pipes say 4" long and see if there is any
difference in performance.

> properly phased.
> Pics, and some documentation can be found here...
