It could stop your heart if you are old, then again just just scaring an old man could have the same effect, the voltage itself is not damaging.
10 20 depends on the size.
then heat up the backside glass tube where the inner tube sits in, moist on the conductive coating can cause black spots.
And you where wrong about just using a rubber coated screwdriver, technicaly it needs a rating that states what voltages it can withstand preferably made of a type of plexiglass, since rubber can be damaged but still looks sealed. i just did not want to make it any more difficult for this guy since his english is not that good.
And my plan to achieve was to make the HV flow as smooth as possible
None of the other advise gave this guy anything to work with other then to exchange the entire thing wich i think he thought of himself.
