Re: Update on good ole Carl Willis

It is wonderful to read this update and hear that Carl is doing so well! Carl was instrumental in my fusor construction and research journey. As someone who has visited with him in Albuquerque, I'll let others here know: it's worth a trip on it's own to spend time with Carl! Thanks Richard for reach...

Re: Nuclear Fusion textbook sale

On a related note, Springer is giving a lot of e-Books away for free during the covid-19 pandemic. Folks may be interested in Introduction to Plasma Physics and Controlled Fusion ( https://link.springer.com/book/10.1007%2F978-3-319-22309-4 ). Someone on the Nuclear Fusion Subreddit linked a list of ...

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. Based off of my ...

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

Julian, As far as the schematic is concerned, it looks like you have most of the major components accounted for. 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...

Re: No news is no news.

<r>I was really happy to catch wind of some of EMC squared's latest work while I was at NASA JSC.

Re: Electrolysis by reversible PEM cell (credit to Michal Racko)

<r>Jack, <br/> <br/> You might consider looking into platinum coated nickel wire. Doug Coulter used to run an electrolysis setup with it and was able to produce enough deuterium for a decent amount of fusion. <br/> <br/> This is were Doug buys his:<br/> <URL url="http://www.scitoyscatalog.com/mm5/me...

Re: First demo fusor vacuum pump

<t>James,<br/> <br/> Take a look through the vacuum FAQs. Lots of new people come on the forum and ask questions about these same pumps and frankly, always get the same answer. So, I highly recommend looking through other posts to find the wealth of knowledge that is really stored on this site. <br/...
