Re: Building A Transformer

Hi,

This website has lots of information on building your own heavy iron transformers: http://ludens.cl/Electron/trafos/trafos.html. Might be worth a look.

Re: Flyback zvs plus multiplier

Re: Easy Inner Grid Fab

I believe mention of these bottles came up once before... At the time I was looking all over for one of these in Canada but could not find one. That was about 4 years ago, they may be more readily available now.

Troy.

For venting the foreline on my system I use an "Up to Air vent valve" from Lesker.. It's rather expensive for what it does, but it works well. Previously I was using a common hardware store ball valve for the purpose but I always suspected that it was the cause of one of my phantom leaks. http://www...

Re: mineral oil, in vacuum pumps

I use that LDS 19 oil from Carl's link and it works pretty well for me. Relatively speaking I think it's a good price and I have always had excellent service and fast delivery from LDS Vacuum shopper.

Cheers,
Troy.
