Re: Is a 2.75 in 6 way cross enough volume for fusion?

Yes. Many fusors on this forum have been built using a 4 way cross. A 6 way cross will do just fine.

Re: xray transformer questions

That is NOT an x Ray transformer. It's a low power filament transformer for the filament of the x Ray tube. They only have an output of around 4-8v

316L Stainless Wire vs 316 Stainless Wire

I hear that stainless steel is a good wire for fusor reactors.

http://www.mcmaster.com/#92705k17/=wl3e9d

My question is can 316L stainless steel wire work for a fusor?

Used VCR Fitting

My previous discussion was on CF gaskets and how are they not reusable. Is it the same thing with VCR gaskets. Are VCR gaskets reusable with the indentation in them?

Used Flange Gaskets

I have a 10 porthole chamber all with 2.75 cf flanges. The knife edge of the cf flange bites down on the gasket. Could used gaskets also work?
