Re: Muhammad Faidzul Demo Fusor

Hi.. Its been a year and a half since my last post. Unfortunately i haven't been able to gather enough resources to build an actual fusor. Im still at plasma stage and have been playing with plasma since. I did manage to buy a vacuum gauge to measure my vacuum chamber and found out it was an awful s...

Re: Muhammad Faidzul Demo Fusor

I don't think this is the worse accident yet. A few months ago, I set my Tesla Coil secondary capacitor (made out of thin aluminum exhaust fan duct) on fire. It had two toroids stack on top of the other. When turned on, it arced between those two due to poor connection and caught fire. In a panic, I...

Re: Muhammad Faidzul Demo Fusor

Hi Richard, Yes, I guess I was lucky to stumble across this unit. I've been watching ebay nearly every day for the past couple of months just to stare at even the cheapest price unit (RM1200++) which I could not afford with my currency. Just for comparison, RM700 (item+shipping+tax of my unit) is ar...

Re: Muhammad Faidzul Demo Fusor

Hi, So I bought this diffusion pump on ebay. Order was made 1st Nov, shipment on 10th Nov, received on 29 Nov. I bought it because it was the cheapest yet i could find and it was the same one used by robofusor http://robofusor.haylett.ca/robofusor-2/equipment-supplies/vacuum-pump/ By visual inspecti...

Re: Archived - Yet another HV power supply project

Hi Rich, Sorry for late reply, I had a gout on my right ankle on Oct 13 and couldn't walk for 3 weeks. Regarding your request for my Bennett HV tank driver board related to this post: http://www.fusor.net/board/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=11088 The Board is fed with DC pulsed signal from the Function Gener...

Re: Muhammad Faidzul Demo Fusor

The electrical conductivity of a gas at a given pressure is characterised by paschen's law (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paschen%27s_law). The mechanics involved can be somewhat complex, but in effect at 'high' pressures voltage breakdown is proportional to pressure, but at low pressures this rela...

Re: Muhammad Faidzul Demo Fusor

Thank you Mr. Richard. The voltage in the chamber is saturated at around 1500v. I guess it shows that my chamber does not have enough gas evacuated to increase the breakdown voltage between the grids. I have read somewhere if the vacuum is perfect, the voltage should saturate at the maximum voltage ...
