Why is my generator not producing gas?

I want to create hho gas for my science experiment, My rig is, I have a glass jar, that has a piece of foam on the bottom. Then I stuck 2 pieces of metal in the foam to hold it in place, then I put distilled water in the jar, I connected wires to the two pieces of metal, then connected it to a machine that puts out volts, It only started producing when it reached 150 volts, to make things worse, when I tried to ignite it, It wouldn't. Why is it not igniting?

I forgot to mention I had a lid on top with a hole plugged up so I could unplug it and ignite it.

First, you need a glass jar! - Yes!
You don't need the foam! No!
Pieces of metal - what type? Needs stainless steel or titanium
Distilled water! - Yes!
Machines that puts out volts?????? No way!!!!!
Positive & Negative at 12 volts, but measured in amps - a car battery! - Yes!
MIssing - NaOH or KOH (Sodium Hydroxide [caustic soda] or Potassium Hydroxide!)
You also should have some neutral plates or "Pieces of metal" between the pos & neg. Not touching each other and you need spacers between each plate (piece of metal!).
Next, add about ½ teaspoon of Drain'o' (caustic soda) VERY CAREFULLY - WEAR PROTECTION ON HANDS AND EYEGLASSES!!!!!
Then slowly turn up power to about 8 amps and then gradually to about 12 amps. You will produce HHO

WARNING:WARNING:WARNING:WARNING:WARNING:WARNING:WARNING:WARNING:
DO NOT IGNITE IT AT THE JAR!!!!! HHO gas or Brown's Gas is extremely potent, if mishandled, it can cause you harm by exploding in your home-made device. If you MUST ignite the gas, use a rubber tube and run the gas from the glass jar through a water filter (Bubbler or a 1-way valve… it helps stop explosions in the 'jar') and can save you from burns!

Good luck on your experiment
