Research Facts
These were used during Leyden jar treatments; the brass rod was used to connect the tin foil on the outside of the Leyden jars together; it laid on the raised portions of the shelf designed for the Leyden jars and touched each jar; as well they acted as charge regulators which kept the charge coming from the electrostatic generating machine as constant as possible.
