Re: Cleaning/Repairing Edwards E2M5

Hello, Bruce Meagher gave me his gauge to use and test and it’s giving the exact same results. 25 torr and that’s the max. My gauge reads 35 torr so I do need to calibrate slightly. Does anyone know if it is bad if I don''t calibrate? This clearly shows that there is nothing wrong with my gauge. He ...

Re: Cleaning/Repairing Edwards E2M5

Hello, I think I will just go ahead with that route. I have seen people do it on these forums in the past so why not give it a go. If it doesn't go well and this thing is a peice of trash, then at least I know that I got my money back on it. I told the seller about the condition this pump and he ref...

Re: Cleaning/Repairing Edwards E2M5

Hello, Thanks for your reply. I only cleaning the case and not the stages. Richard advised me not to do so until I tested the pump. I don't want to spend more money so i'm afraid of opening up the stages as that would require me to change the o-rings. I remember someone saying that the orings can on...

Re: Cleaning/Repairing Edwards E2M5

Hi all, I finally programmed my MKS 901P using python and got it reading pressures and stuff. I will detail the whole procedure later. I also finally got the necessary adaptors and clamps for testing so I got right to it. Because the pics are really big in size i kept them in a separate google drive...

Re: Joe Gayo's Fusor

Really nice setup man! You must have worked hard and long. I'm sure if you live close to a large city that there are calibration services or people on this form who are willing to calibrate with you. Good luck on your efforts, but judging how well this system is, I don't think your going to need it....

Re: Wendelstein 7-X has successfully finished its second major experimental run

I think you guys interpreted what I said incorrectly. But I did give a bad explanation. I wasn't trying to say that there will be new technologies. I have seen how uranium is enriched and how D2O is made. They are both a very hard process. Rather than coming up with new technologies, we just make th...

Re: Wendelstein 7-X has successfully finished its second major experimental run

I had the opportunity to see one of the Canadian made CANDU reactors a long time ago here in Ontario. Now looking on the internet, I can find that this design is in fact a very desirable one. The only problem with this reactor is as you mentioned, the cost. They sold a couple reactors at first and l...

Re: Wendelstein 7-X has successfully finished its second major experimental run

Hello again, As a follow up to the previous thread, I wanted to ask a simple question. How can we bring nuclear energy back? I thought that it could be done by teaching others through persuasive education to the public. An example is telling them the benefits and why nuclear is such a great solution...

Re: Cleaning/Repairing Edwards E2M5

Hello Thank you all so much for your suggestions, I can't say enough thanks in a life time. I just took a look and will purchase it soon. Since I'm from Canada, the price of shipping is $16 dollars... So as soon as I get that all worked out I should be able to purchase it. I also purchased an MKS 90...
