Re: Finn Hammer, neutron club application

Great work on all fronts, Finn. When one has the "fire in the belly", spreading that fire to others via teaching efforts is the coin of tomorrow.

Re: Finn Hammer, neutron club application

Finn, I knew Doc Bussard's engineer, Tom Ligon since 1996. He tried to interest me in the fusor back then. He sent me his article, yet to be published on the fusor. I was interested, but only in a passing way as I was deep into working with the Tesla magnifier at that time. However, like you, Finn, ...

Re: Finn Hammer, neutron club application

Finn, That was a great video which proves in the best way that you have a superlative fusor system, doing fusion. As such, your name is added to the special fusioneers as you have shown neutron activation. A really fine set up and a great view and tour of all of its components. Congratulations, Rich...

Re: Historical reflection on an early fusioneer

Looking back to this 2001 masterpiece is amazing, but by todays top level standards, cube fusors and other superlative efforts doing far more, this nice fusor by Joe is on a par with where I was about 2 year after Joe's effort. I was a slow mover by comparison. Today the fusioneers are far more soph...

Re: Finn Hammer, neutron club application

I too, could not open the neutron video on google you-tube. It said it was a private video, not available.

Re: Apparatus for Making a Deuterated Target

I was a bit worried about the volumes involved when I saw the syringe there. Even with tanked Deuterium, keeping the volume limited in the feed system is the thing to do or shoot for.

Re: Eastside Prep Fusor

Like Joe, I am positive x-rays play zero role in your issues. I run my fusor on a 60 hz supply as well and just run full wave rectification at 40-45kv with zero filtering. I find any effort to filter even straight out of the high voltage transformer at 60hz in the fusor environment creates unwanted ...
