Re: Track detectors

While posted on before in a limited fashion, this is another method in the neutron detection kit. Unfortunately, I am loath to allow it as proof of fusion and neutrons at present. Once a rigid methodology is established as to precise elimination of charged particles in a manner that assures only pro...

Re: Posting in FAQs vs user privileges

Sorry Frank, I did not know the tests were still ongoing. I though I looked at the time of creation and it was 1:50 something PM. I figured they were part of a completed test, as it was after midnight. Just so we are on the same page, in future say "Richard do not erase...I will delete when done". A...

Re: DIY gas filled proportional tubes

You can give it a go if you have a stock of tubes and can afford to lose one to the effort. Proportional tubes that use air or some easy to obtain gas are far too easy to just go ahead and make from scratch, especially for experimenting with as you can design them for this specific purpose.

Re: Posting in FAQs vs user privileges

Long ago when most folks could post a FAQ. I suggested that anyone posting a FAQ, first, should give it a strong title such that it would not be overlooked by a newbie looking for what you are imparting in the FAQ. Second to make the FAQ as complete as possible by thinking deeply not only about your...

Re: FAQ - Make your own deuterium from heavy water!! The video

I have significantly reorganized the original post. I now feel that this first posting FAQ is a stand alone video, extravaganza of great and lasting value when the videos are viewed as I have edited them in sequential order. Much of the following replies are dealt with in this one original posting n...

Re: Diagnosing pressure rise in bell jar

I am sure Mark nailed it. Outgassing of components in the freshly sealed system as opposed to leaks. The very lightest coating of the gasket with vacuum grease might help. However all of this assumes you are sealed well all the way down the line from the valve to the chamber. On great test is to war...

Re: FAQ - Make your own deuterium from heavy water!! The video

I find Mark's reasoning quite sound. The DIY in-it-to-win-it types are best served by syringe fed electrolizers. Those few long term fusioneers might wish to invest in either tanked gas, if they can obtain it, or try out the Hydrofill tanked system. Mark, once he got his operation down, notes that t...

Re: FAQ - Make your own deuterium from heavy water!! The video

We ran these calcs way back. We determined you get a lot more D2 via electrolyzation per unit dollar spent than tanked gas. A 50 liter tank can cost over $350 now with about $100 being the disposable, non-refillable tank. So in a large tank 100 liters might cost $500 in bulk. This is opposed to abou...
