Fusor Build - Colin Heath

Post by Colin Heath » Sun Jun 23, 2019 11:25 am

Hello All,

My third Fusor build (after many years away) in now in progress.

The main chamber is to be a 6” cylinder with Dairy clamp fittings on the ends to seal (A KF fitting but with O Ring groove). These will be sealed with Viton seals.

There will then be 4 off 1.5” inlets around circumference for vacuum, high voltage, view port and one spare for Gas later which will be vacuum gauge to start.

Here are pictures of the tube clamp I made this morningand the components for the stainless inner grid to be welded this week.

Yes it has transformed how we fabricate and design day to day, would struggle without it now!

I managed to get the inner grid welded today between jobs.

Not sure if the edges will need sharpening to reduce collision with the gris but will find out in due course. This is the first of many different shapes I will no doubt try.
