Re: Fusor build: parts and construction

Nice solid hardware to start with.

I own one of those transformers, they're pretty nice - but consider pulling a mild vacuum on it while it's under oil to displace the air bubbles.

Update: Still air brushing the system, tweaking things here and there, here some glorious eye candy.

Re: Tubbs Beam-on-Target Effort [Neuts/Pics/Tips]

Thank you for the kind words George. Doing beam on target to a level that allows one to say "I've done beam on target fusion" is well within amateur reach. However, a BoT that could compare with the typical actively pumped industrial systems from 10-15 years ago is my goal - something I'm slowly stu...

Re: Tubbs Beam-on-Target Effort [Neuts/Pics/Tips]

Update. The little accelerator system is not so little now, I've attached the beast's head to the body and installed the system down at NWNC. Some initial lead sheet was thrown on some of the problem areas (i.e. Glass Envelope & Viewport) - It is my hope that we could start doing neutron runs with t...

Re: Tubbs Beam-on-Target Effort [Neuts/Pics/Tips]

Howdy Folks, I've been a tad under the gun at the day-job, but nonetheless have been tinkering with the system for a few minutes every night when I get home. I've brought the beam-current up a smidgen and also have begun testing different target materials - still of course mounted inside my lathed a...
