Building a vandergraph generator

  1. Apr 13, 2007 #1
    hi, i'm going to try to design and build a vandergraph generator for a design and technologie project for school, but there are a few things that i need help with. do the pullys need to be made out of a specific material or can they just be plastic? what's the best metal for the dome to be? and any other usefull tips would be appreciated, thanks. ^_^
