Quick question, how did you connect your vacuum.

Liam,

I am not the judge here.
If I were, would expect more than a picture (which you could have found anywhere).
If you can make a plasma, you ought to be able to effectively tell the story.
To Richard Hull: are the req's for plasma club codified as clearly as those for neutron club?

How about a few words about the power supply. Is it adjustable? Is it DC? What polarity? Any measurements?

How about the vacuum system. How connected to chamber? Can you adjust the vacuum? Have you measured it? Does the plasma go out if you run the pump long enough?

Tell us more about the chamber. What vessel? What are you using for a feedthrough? What are the curly wires made of?

Thanks! I hope we hear more from you.

Thanks people for all the support and help!

My fusor is powered by a -3000v rectified dc nst, and has a 3 cfm rotary vane vacuum pump.
