James E. Cox tested and videotaped the forces generated by his six-gap toroidal spark engine. He found it created a short-lived, high-pressure plasma pulse capable of producing dramatic effects. This is a continuation of his work which was presented in ESJ 5 (?Toroidal Spark Gap Engine,? pp. 6-10).
