Re: Initial Vacuum Confirmation

<r>About three years ago I decided I needed a new hobby. I <br/> researched building a linear accelerator or a cyclotron. In some of the <br/> literature there was a reference to the fusor.

Thanks
From the choices, fast and cheap is the only bad one.

Re: Initial Vacuum Confirmation

Todd,
This is a lot of fun, but I am serious about getting some good measurements.
Add $4,700.00 for the RGA.
I am trading investment for time.

Initial Vacuum Confirmation

The system is pumped through a 2.5" manifold with 2 butterfly valves in the full open position. I have 1 Mag-lev 4" turbo...

Re: Update on deuterium prices...anything better out there?

The water cooling is tested.
We are wiring up the system to be USB controlled.
I will pull a vacuum next week, then use the RGA for leaks and

This is fun, but slow.
