Re: Update For Demo Fusor

It was a truly amazing donation by Mike Veldman, unfortunately it is a custom sized CF flange for which I cannot find any adapters or flanges.

Re: Deuterium Amount

All of this is covered in high school chemistry, it is just a matter of explaining the proper way to convert these units.

Re: Newbie: Could this potentially be used in fusion?

Secondly, before posting much more, you should probably go write a post for yourself in the Introduction forum. This is important to do also correct me if I am wrong but I believe that, that power source is useless when it comes to fusor use. It is a Van De Graaff generator and would have no use in...

Re: Allanson NST

Like Richard said, AC does not have a fixed polarity therefore it does not matter wire goes where, as long as the input is connected to the input, and the output (two large ceramic knobs) are connected correctly. Also I would recommended a 7.5 amp variac or higher.

Re: Atom Smasher

Yes I realize that. Also I believe if I am thinking right it will not matter if it is U-238 or U-235. If the fission takes place inside of the chamber will it interact of the Deuterium and if so how? Or would it just create a mess of fusion and fission with multiple byproducts.

How to take out a GFCI from a "Transco" neon transformer

I know that a huge problem for people here is finding a good, cheap, GFCI free, NST. Well I have asked around and my friend told me how to take one out, therefore turning it into a normal NST. He sent me these pictures which are self explanatory. I thought I would pass the info on. Here are his inst...
