Re: Basic power supply questions

There are plenty of sources for what you are looking for, and since yours' are the most basic of questions they should not take more than a few minutes to find.

Spinthariscope

Just wondering, is there any possibility to not use these to detect proton recoil from alphas, but to detect protons from D+D=p+T fusion reactions? If so, it would make a good poor boy neutron detector.

Re: Current and Voltage Metering for a HV Supply

If the voltmeter you have reads DC, you can simply do the same thing you are currently doing, only instead of the divider, you can replace it with a high voltage diode and switch it to positive right before the meter.

Re: Vacuum Pump?

Thanks, looks almost exactly like the one on wiki. Should have recognized that earlier.

Vacuum Pump?

<t>I found this pump as I was looking though some old army surplus. It is labeled "pump" with .75 horsepower connection type flange. I assume that it is a vacuum pump because of the SS flange and the intake seams to be similar to a standard vacuum pump. I don't know what type this is, and was wonder...

Re: Carbon Steel

<t>How would copper work if it was plated in that? I have the means to plate almost any metal with copper using electrolysis in water saturated with copper sulfate. I have enough copper sulfate to plate any amount of material I need, so I don't think that cost would be an issue. I think that it woul...

Carbon Steel

Would there be any problems with using carbon steel to build the body of a fusor? Is there anything different you would have to do while machining and welding it? It seems like it should work mostly the same, but I don't know for sure.

Tube Lore

<t>I was recently looking through some of the books that my school's library was selling, when my eye was caught by one with the title of Tube Lore. I bought it promptly, and went off to read it. It contains a listing of registration numbers for and descriptions of just about every electron tube tha...

Re: He3

<t>That has been the case in the past, but with the discovery of H2O on the moon, "moontravel" is liable to change drastically. Now all we would have to do is build the initial setup on the moon, and then we can manufacture our own fuel right there. Since the gravity is so much less, we could bring ...

Re: He3

<t>It looks as if Russia is challenging the U.S, in the realm of space again, and this time it looks like they're going to beat us. Russia has been looking for something to stabilize their economy, and it looks like they have finally found it. If this turns out to be as profitable as they claim, it ...
