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.

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 all, Update: I managed to remove most of the crap. Thank you all for your recommendations. So I used all your guys advice. Here's what I did: 1.
