Re: I'm back, and fusing

Thanks for sharing, that is very interesting to hear! I've chatted with Peter Schmelcher in the past about his designs for a 3D printed Claymount connector for these and even got his STL files so I can print one and experiment but I haven't had time to actually get around to it yet.

Re: I'm back, and fusing

Hi Liam,

First of all, congrats and welcome back!

As a fellow owner of one of the ebay Spellman DXM70N600 supplies, I am curious about how you are connecting from the supply to your feed through. Could you provide some details about how you're physically plugging into the supply?

Thanks!

Re: Basic plan for a demo fusor

You however might want to include a high voltage feed-through (so you can feed the voltage into the chamber while keeping the chamber grounded) and a view port (so you can see what is goi...

So, I highly recommend looking through other posts to find the wealth of knowledge that is really stored on this site. <br/...
