Re: bell jar safety

... <br/> <br/> You said you wouldn't recommend going beyond 12 - 15 kV in a glass <br/> Fusor. What would say are maximum currents at these voltages? I <br/> ask because the higher current will of course bore through the glass <br/> quicker. And I am just about ready to work at this <br/> ...

Re: glassman hv supply

thanks for the replys. i am fully aware of high voltage safety so my main concern is if pushing ions towards the centre is going to be as efficient as pulling them in with regards to focus
also is 4ma enough current?
many thanks
