Re: Demo Fusor Progress

Your both welcome and Ed really did a good job. That is why sharing results here are so useful for everyone. Yes, a good insect window screen (heavy gauge better) will be sufficient. Frame mounting and make it like a square foot or so in size should provide protection - of course, it should be as cl...

Re: Research facility construction

Well, finished the floor in my new research facility - grout & sealant are dry; still have to build the shelves next to the entry way but that will likely be this weekend. Will move the fusor and particle accelerator into the lab room later today. Its been a laborious build but hopefully, worthwhile...

Re: Demo Fusor Progress

First, nice demo build - very proffessional. By the way, an accurate vacuum gauge isn't needed for a demo fusor; that analog gauge, while worthless for accurate readings as Richard said, will at least inform you that you have achieved a rough vacuum. The plasma, once ignited and via color, will info...

Re: Vacuum Chamber Construction

Your system looks absolutely professional and you've obviously become an expert machinist, as well. I'd find it hard to believe that you'll see any leakage using pressure/soap because that system is too well made to exhibit any significant leaks. Look forward to your further posts.

Re: Research facility construction

Thank you very much, Richard. Wish it was larger but then I remember how much work the foudation, dry wall install and cutting tiles was and realize that I certainly extended myself, effort wise, even with this size room. Still it will do, through maybe a bit tight for my projected four research pro...

Re: Research facility construction

Interesting because I debated on whether to install my blower motor for the glass furnace but in the end, decided I didn't need it; the glass is non-toxic (as are all my materials.) Well, progress: the room is painted and now nearly fully tiled (except for a narrow last row but I ran out of floor ad...

Re: Gaining some energy back from our fusion reactors

Again, Richard hits the gold! This site is all about sharing ones plans and what one is currently doing! That is what we all really like about the site. For instance, I'm currently posting of all things my efforts in building a glorified shed to do fusor work in. Silly in some ways but I got useful ...

Re: Gaining some energy back from our fusion reactors

I think you do not understand the difference between the types of fusion that we (the fusor community) and major fusion centers (ITER, for instance) perform. Fusion like how the Sun works is what fusor's do - i.e. fusion via tunneling. Fusion in a magnetic or inertia drive system is brute force K.E....

Re: Research facility construction

After starting mine, I happen to pass a place that offered "Amish" sheds. Likely mine would still be cheaper (in both senses of the word ...) but too late to really consider. Well, after the drywall install and spackling, I really realized that I'm happy with this smaller building - sheet rock insta...

Re: Gaining some energy back from our fusion reactors

Richard, as his usual, hits the gold; why are you here? Why did I join? Why do most people join and post here? These questions share one common answer - to learn about fusion via a device called a fusor; this is not and never will produce usable energy (see FAQ's). But I wanted you to calculate that...
