Re: fusor version 0.8 and a bit

actuialy alot of the weight of the chamber is taken by the dexian frame you can just about see in the pic. it would all have toppeled over otherwise. the dexian also gives me somewhere to tie wires to so they don't trail about too much :)

Re: (Non-vacuum?) BeO feedthrough

<r>concentrated phosphoric acid is also a rather good flux for stainless and the fumes seem to be slightly less damageing to adjacent bits of metal. i was amused to discover however that hot conc phosphoric will happily turn paper towls and cloth to black carbonized gunk so caution is still advised ...

fusor version 0.8 and a bit

<r>i have implemented several large improvements in my fusor recently. the most importent of which was the installing of a propper conflat reducer for the turbo pump. i now have much more controll over the preasure and flow rate through the fusor, and there is much less danger of bits of molten grid...

Re: VARIACS

<r>varacs are very tough due to the large iron core. if you point a few fans at them you can a) use them that at a higher current that they are rated for (at least on the short term) and b) tell when there getting hot by the smell <E>:)</E> <br/> <br/> unless you are planning to activate your entire...

Re: deuterium handeling

<r>indead the price of the regulator is rather excessive. i was given a resonable amount of D2O for free, and would obviously like to make use of that. another advantage of D2O is if one gets bored with fusor work, it can be used for sonofusion or LENR/CANR experaments as well <E>:)</E><br/> <br/> w...

Re: deuterium handeling

but i LIKE homegrown potatos ;)

i was reely just worried about contamination of the D with H from elastomer o-rings and suchlike, alough the prospect of the D defusing through the D20 to the O2 side when the device is powered down is somewhat worying.

<t>I am about to build the deuterium handling system and there are some things i need to know. I am building a D2O slitter based system.<br/> <br/> What (if any) plastics are deuterium compatable? to what extent will D swap with H in polymers/adhesivs/sealents? is the situation the same for D2O? wil...

Re: Source for Uranium Metal?

<t>i would urge anyone planning to do anything involving radioactive chemistory to first perform a similer process with potassium permanganate or rhodamine and water. then when they see how any chemicals tend to get EVERYWHERE not just in the preperation stage, but when you take off your gloves and ...
