Re: Ask a question, is a high voltage will damage the equipm

In a functioning fusor, very little current will run through the center ground, right? I thought most of it will flow in the circuit between the transformer and fusor. Please correct me if I am wrong, but I was under the impression the ground connection simply served to make you and the fusor shell ...

Electricity and electronics online textbook

Just thought I would put http://www.allaboutcircuits.com up here. This great resource covering topics from basic electricity to advanced circuits. I would recommend it to anyone who lacks an electronics background, but is willing to learn. Even those who just need a refresher might find it useful.

Hacking NST to get Fusor Power Supply

So I'm curious. My impression is that a 15kv@60mA neon sign transformer can't just be hooked up to a 3 stage voltage multiplier to get the ~30kv@20mA, but why is that? Wouldn't this be a relatively simple way to get easily detectable fusion? Even with lower current or voltage models you could hook u...
