Little known is the fact that he made one of his own after the same model that did work but not as smooth.  I think it bit the dust long ago. The only things that survived are some of the logins he built a la 3348 & 3324

i seem to remember his discovery around that time that if you run the current through a coil you get a shock, but if you run it direct from a battery, you do not.

Mark de LA says
He had a coil from a car starter which he liked to shock the kids with. It made a spark gap. Once hooked it up so that if you put your hands in a thing of water you got a shock. null
