Re: Channel 9 @ MS is carrying our story.

<t>I will upload to "you tube" tonight, and post on this board. Doug, all you have said is absolutely true. I honestly don't expect that I will be able to penetrate the brick and mortar institutions without a battle, but I do have a strategy. Again, the legislature has really slammed the schools thi...

Channel 9 @ MS is carrying our story.

<r>Microsoft came back and did a story on us after the Science Fair, and it just got posted. I was a bundle of nerves trying to talk and I wander a bit, but I don't think the verbal slips are as horrific as I remembered them. Although the kids did far better than I did in front of the camera.<br/> <...

Re: Finished chamber

<t>I see that Veeco Diffusion pump, and it's the very same one I use. Great little pump. Some data points are, that it takes 20 minutes to warm up, and top temp is about 240 degree's F. and you want to use Dow Corning 704 oil in it. You can get it through Kurt J Lesker in 500ml bottles. Start with 1...

ASA Bellows requires 5 weeks lead time!!??

<t>Hello fellow fusioneers. I am not having much luck coming up with a part that I can find in everyones on-line catalogue. A sample of the response I am getting is below. I don't mind the price, its the lead time that kills me. If they list the part in the catalogue, shouldn't they carry it? <br/> ...

Re: MFC Gas handling system

<t>Thanks Steve, for some really well timed idea's. I spent part of the Christmas holiday adapting your presentation ever so slightly to fit my circumstances. My biggest win, was that I found a Miller-Nelson MFC controller on eBay for about $130.00 that had a bad pot, and I was able to find the exac...

Re: Parraphene facts

<t>Hi Richard, I notice that in this particular example a 50 / 50 mix is cited. I believe I have also seen a 70 / 30 number inferred in another thread with regards to paraffin and boron. The commercial stuff is polyethylene with 5% boron. There is also a 2% variety of the commercial stuff. My questi...

Re: Fusor by Frankenstein

<r>I have a traveling electrical show. Youth camps, and high schools. I have a Tesla that is formidable as well. The Cockcroft is one more piece to that show. Yes, I realize the danger, and that's why the term "Frankenstein". I have been doing this for a while, and still believe that the risks are j...

Cockcroft Walton 4 stage full wave calculation based on 60HZ

<t>A very wise man on this board once said; "You should have an effective total capacity of at least 3 Tc of the power frequency to hold the business up. Thus, about 50ms Tc would be needed. The ideal would be a net capacity of 50x10e-3/6x10e6 or ~8X10-9 farad or 8 nanofarads. In a four ladder capac...
