NIM system or Digital Detector

I saw a post in the new users section on the construction of a NIM system for neutron detection and it got me interested. After reading the NIM FAQ I noticed a paragraph which read “Small boxes the size of a pack of cigarettes now plug into the USB port via a cable and you have a complete gamma spec...

Re: Reactor Update - 4/22/18

There isn't a professional fusor setup without professional clamps! There isn't an upgrade necessarily with the deuterium line, but just fabricating a new one and fitting it into my compact setup is an endeavor that I'm not interested in right now. Also, the Chamber and frame are grounded directly i...

Reactor Update - 4/22/18

It's been several months since I was admitted to the neutron club and I'm pleased to say I have made a quite a lot of progress since then. This was the reactor when it did it's first fusion run: image.jpeg And here it is now: image.jpeg There are too many changes to count, but I'll expound on a few....

Re: Can I make my own ConFlat flanges?

Your question has been answered countless times. Is there something you’d like to hear? Yes, you can make your own conflat flange. Go ahead. The question you are asking is not a yes or no question, but you want a yes or no answer. If you truly believe you are capable of making a decent flange, then ...

Re: Can I make my own ConFlat flanges?

Yes, it's possible to reach pressures low enough for fusion with a homemade flange. The real question is whether or not YOU Are capable of making a good enough flange. Unless you have experience with precision machining your chances of creating a usable flange are very low. You would be far better o...

Re: TMH-260 Turbo

Don’t let the pump run that long in atmosphere. Good job otherwise.

We're did you purchase those two big turbos? I've seen ones far smaller go for $20,000+.

Re: Operating Pfeiffer TC100 Controller

I agree, I definitely need a proper gauge, not an HVAC gauge. How do I find the pin out for this gauge? Is there a proper controller? How do I read the pressure off it?

Thanks!
