Re: Ameen's designing efforts

Hello, Though I have not purchased any of the parts yet, I'm going to start in two weeks time. I just wanted to remind you that these prices are in Canadian so converting them will display even better prices. As for the parts, I have already located them with the links. I just didn't want to show th...

Ameen's designing efforts

Hello, I have recently finished my design and capital evaluation on my fusor. Bellow I have attached an IGS file and the link to my google sheets document. Now for some self reflection. For the Feed through I found a listing on eBay at about $500. I'm trying to bargain down the price at the moment, ...

Re: Wanted: Roughing Pump

I'm not so sure about you not being able to find a pump that is under $500. If you search for used pumps, it is guaranteed to find more than 1 under $400. Also, there is such thing as using the make an offer button to bargain the price down. I once got a $750 diffusion pump listing for $75. If your ...

Re: Slight dents on the knife edge... Will it work?

I have seen that thread (no photos for reference), along with another that details a viewport that had some damage. They figured that using some apiezon M grease would help for 10^-6 Torr. They also said to just use viton gaskets instead. I also heard that some people can re machine it, which I may ...

Slight dents on the knife edge... Will it work?

Hello, After some time I have finally completed all necessary designing processes in the endeavour of building a fusion reactor. I found a seller on eBay who was willing to sell me a 4.5" 6 way-cross for a reasonable price. The biggest problem, however, is the knife edge. Attached are some pictures ...

Re: Vacuum chamber parts

If you are trying to do precise experiments then a glass jar wouldn't be your best bet. On top of this, they a pretty expensive. An answer to your question is you can find it on eBay. I really recommend to just go on eBay and find any type of 6 way-cross that you find suitable (CF, KF). They're chea...

Re: Can I make my own ConFlat flanges?

Hello, I recall further back in this thread that John Futter mentioned that I can get some ConFlat flanges from China at cheaper than the material costs. IS this true? If so, can anybody reference where to get them? As well, would they be of any lesser quality than the average you can purchase from ...

Re: MKS 901p

Hello, I am very bad at anything that comes to computer programing so I apologize if I sound very inexperienced. I remember Andrew Seltzman posting code on this thread. He said that it is possible to use Matlab as a program to properly interpret the signals. I'm imagining that you use the analog out...

Should I Buy the Pump?

Hello, Recently I got the offer for $200US for this pump on ebay. By the looks of it, it seem to be the most amazing one I have ever seen. It comes with a cryogenic cold trap so there is no need to worry about the back draft. The unit is 550 watts and is said to be in working condition pulled strait...
