Re: high school fusor project

I would recommend emailing local college professors in EE or Physics and ask if they would be willing to take on a high school research student. It is rare but I have seen it done, and most professors are open to the prospect. You would be surprised... Professors like job security and are much like...

Re: FAQ - Fusor gas delivery and pressure control system

Finally, exactly what I was looking for on this forum.

This diagram is quite similar to my original drawing posted in another thread... But had no idea about the pressure regulators or PSI meters (skipped my mind)

Re: Vaccum pump and fusion chamber recommendations

Can anyone verify these items posted by Joe as viable? Looks nice, a little pricey - but nice.

Edit: if I understand correctly from what Joe posted plus a power supply and deuterium gas I would be set - would I not?

Re: Vaccum pump and fusion chamber recommendations

So what are some examples of Edwards fusion pumps that might qualify for this use?

Also - https://www.ebay.com/itm/MDC-Ultra-High ... :rk:1:pf:0

Does this work for the fusor chamber?

Vaccum pump and fusion chamber recommendations

Hello, I am looking for a quality vaccum pump and fusion chamber. I have seen Edwards brand mentioned frequently on here, and despite not seeing MDC branded fusion chambers (just haven't searched the forum extensively for this part yet) their brand seems alive and well as far as new parts are concer...

Re: Someone give me some exact specs

I had an idea but someone said there was serious flaws in my drawing. I have no problem putting on a gas mask and jimmying the thing. I've consumed substances in my youth that are probably more lethal than a fusor could ever be. My house could turn into chernobyl but I am prepared - I readily have h...

Re: Someone give me some exact specs

Awhh cmon man, We all know we're gonna pump earth to apocalypse-level carbon in this lifetime, lets at least have some fun with it and sell the real answer (nuclear) while we are still breathing OK William. After you are proficient at fusing, you are free to profit by producing a ready-to-fly fusor,...

Re: Someone give me some exact specs

$30k seems like a really reasonable price through my eyes, might not to most but hear me out - if any of that energy could be harnessed then the cost could be completely justified. A hobby project to me though (I understand that it won't power my house or energy hogging BOINC operation by any means)...

Re: Someone give me some exact specs

Hey, Thanks fellas. you guys are actually pretty legit. I'm not a troll! just know that haha. I am just *ahem* a little "internet challenged" as my social skills are just abrasive to others (a little odd for a millennial; but I don't use facebook or social media in general just because I know I piss...

Re: Someone give me some exact specs

So if I am not mistaken this is like a glorified form of cooking methamphetamine? Every other scientific process has a direct, cultivated, and proper way of doing things. I'm not against jimmy rigging something - but I need the support of others to dictate what specific parts I may need and how I mi...
