The electrical matter consists of particles extremely subile, since it can permeate common matter, even the densest metals, with such ease and freedom as not to receive any perceptible resistance.

-Benjamin Franklin
Greetings Everyone,

Happy Independence Day! We want to wish all of you a fun and safe holiday. Fire up the BBQ, cut yourself a big piece of apple pie, and check out some of the fun stuff we have in this special July 4th Hotwire. We have an exciting video of a Tesla Coil in action, a short tribute to the founding father who made early contributions to electrical technology, and Pushmatic breakers on eBay. Enjoy the fireworks and let's get to the Hotwire.
Fireworks are great, but have you ever seen a real running Tesla Coil ? Nikola Tesla was a man way ahead of his time, a genius, and an independent thinker. ROMAC has acquired several of these fantastic devices over the years for demonstration and education. The coil in the video above was designed and built by retired rocket scientist David Qualls . Watch the video to see it in action!
The First American And Electrical Pioneer
Benjamin Franklin
He's one of the founding fathers, he invented a stove (the Franklin stove), and his face is on the hundred dollar bill. He was a leading author, printer, political theorist, politician, postmaster, scientist, inventor, humorist, activist, statesman, and diplomat. Benjamin Franklin was, by far, one of the most prolific and forward thinkers of his time. He was given the title "The First American" for his early campaigning for colonial unity. He was also a pioneer of electrical technology.

Most of us are familiar with the image of Franklin flying a kite in a storm that loosely relates to an experiment that he proposed to prove that lightning was electricity. The actual experiment was well thought out and not the reckless flying of a kite in a lightning storm; Franklin was well aware of the dangers of electrical shock.

Franklin's experiments led him to discover the principle of the conservation of charge and to invent the lightning rod--one of the first electrical safety devices. Franklin truly represents the innovative spirit of America.
