    Does anyone think this is a dangerious circuit?

    Charge the capacitors, push the button and discharge the caps into the coil. The coil super charges the magnet. The magnet will barely lift 1 lb but after it is super charged it will lift 2500 lbs for 2 seconds. The magnet has a half life is about 3 seconds. Lifting power drops back to normal in about 1 minute.

    Yes, it's dangerous for several reasons, and I expect this thread will be closed.

    This circuit has managed to violate ToS on several fronts. It is a mains powered circuit, which is not safe under any circumstances. It could be a rail gun, another no-no. I'm sure if I studied it I could find other things, but that is enough to close it.

    This is not a punishment. We just don't do that here.
