There is another Thread reporting electrical accidents that have happened.
This Thread is an accident about to happen.

I now have two capacitors with HV ratings, one @ 1800Vac, 0u92F and one @ 2100Vac, 1.8uF.
What experiment can I carry out with them in my arsenal?
I am joking, I favour life over death.

1-kV power supply produces a continuous arc | EDN

?
As long as you are cautious and are in a protected esd safe environment, wearing rubber shoes, glasses and gloves, do not touch the circuit when it is operating, what could go wrong?

Personally, I have been looking at that circuit for some time now, it would also be interesting to make a batch of capacitors to see if I could make them and match them to spec myself. Never thought of it seriously before this thread.
