Electrical Addiction is a light hearted book of illustrations and pictures.

Background and Origin

This site is based on a collection of parts from electronic and electrical equipment. It also covers some information on experiments and projects. It's just a small insight into the fascinating world of electronics over the years. Many items may be obsolete but they still show the design ingenuity and engineering at its best.

Returning visitors to this site may have noticed that we have up-dated the page layouts to this new page style. This process is now nearly complete, just a few small tweeks and it will hopefully result in faster loading and clearer pages. Well that's the plan anyway.

There is access to over 20 pages on this site. The 5 main headings on the top tool bar get you started. Watch for link buttons for MORE pages and topic. Some pictures are also linked. There is a drop down tool on the new-look web pages to facilitate faster access.

The experiments and projects are for general information. Some of the details required to copy the experiments may not be available on this site. This is intentional as there are hazards associated with many of the set-ups. In particular high voltages and electromagnetic radiation. Precautions and safe practices need to be employed when using high voltages. Many insulating materials become conductors at very high voltages including air.High voltage capacitors must always be regarded as potentially lethal.

Do not attempt any of the experiments shown on these web pages.

A good working knowledge and training in dealing with High voltages is essential. Many precautions are taken here and are not covered by this web site. Many more should be taken!

The site name

The name Tuopeek comes from Keep Out backwards. Tuopeek like 'Keep Out' suggest danger but associates the inquisitive nature of peek. Perhaps used here in its inverse form to mean "come in" !

There are a number of video links on the pages. There are additional videos available from HERE or from the tool bar.
