Re: LCD Vacuum Sensor

Happy to report progress continues quickly, I've written a little function that updates to the screen. It converts an int value to a series of char values and prints them out. Forth is a fun little language!

Re: LCD Vacuum Sensor

Happy to report, that without too much trouble I can now write text out to my LCD screen. It took a solid 8 weeks for the parts to arrive due to mail delays with the pandemic, and since completing my coop and moving back home I haven't had much spare time to work on it. All the components of my prog...

Unfortunately the photos have disappeared ...

Re: 50kV Supply

I've finally gotten around the opening up my Glassman 50KV supply, and was reviewing this thread before beginning the conversion work for my fusor. Unfortunately a number of photo links in this thread appear to be dead, I was hoping Joe had some backed up and would be able to repost them!

They have a web setup for designing automation and machine tending applications for factories. A large component of ...
