Re: Ahmed, meet Taylor; Taylor, meet Ahmed

Wow, interesting. This incident is the result of ignorance, paranoia, and likely racism that unfortunately permeates many schools and law enforcement orgs these days. Ignorance: Homemade digital clocks in attache cases are no more illegal than possessing deuterium gas. According to every report I re...

Re: Book about Taylor Wilson is out

Thanks for the review, sounds interesting. As for Taylor, and not having read this book, you have to give the guy credit for being articulate and able to sell himself. I find it amusing that people judge him based on whether he is a show-off or not. Being intelligent is a great personal asset but if...

Re: What a gas! - deuterium update

And on that note,

If anyone in Colorado has deuterium they wish to sell, I'll buy.

Re: What a gas! - deuterium update

That price tracks inflation since 1998 very well. Apparently the supply/demand balance hasn't changed since then. Richard, what new regulations are coming on line? I haven't been able to find a supplier and I'm no 15-year-old. I asked my welding supply store if they could order some and they said th...

X-ray machine power supply question

Hello All, I have the opportunity to acquire a working x-ray machine built in the 1970s, pictured below. I am trying to determine if the power supply is appropriate for a fusor. The power output is adequate, with voltage ranging from 0 to more than -70kV and supplying 0-30mA of current. There is a t...

Re: could this tiny design actually fuse anything?

From what I can tell based on articles, the Facebook group and the many years worth of postings here at Fusor.net, the number of people who actually build and run a neutron producing fusor are few and far between. The Neutron Club list is quite short for the number of years this has been going on. T...

Anyone have experience/advice about this power supply?

Hi all, A while back I scored an x-ray power supply off of eBay for cheap. Unfortunately the control interface was not available. It's been sitting in my garage for a few months and now I am finally getting around to seeing what I can do to build a controller and get it working. First off, it didn't...

Re: NIMs query

Thanks everyone,

I have more than enough electronics experience to deal with the modules themselves. What is new to me is how a particular neutron detector is pieced together with the various types of modules available. This information is a good start.
