I recently had cause to take down a ceiling fan from one of our bedrooms. It
is in perfectly good working condition, but not worth much. I may just give
it to charity, but I wondered if there were some HV uses for it? If the
motor was mounted properly would the center spindle make the useful stem for
a rotary spark gap? It is a 3-speed motor.
I read in the archives about using the fan housing as a toroid, but this
fan's housing is not shaped that way . . . any other notions?
