========== FOR SALE =========

Forepump - $200
- https://photos.app.goo.gl/5JtWMYQmK6SB6DPEA
- Includes:
.... Welch Duo-Seal Vacuum Pump, Model 1402
.... Exhaust Filter
.... Duo Seal Pump Oil and Vacuum Pump Flushing Fluid, approx 2.5 qts remain in each container
.... Small sections of vacuum tubing, and KF25 hose adapters
.... Exhaust cap, can be used instead of exhaust filter
.... Rubber stoppers
.... Owner's Manual
.... Cart
- Pumps to 10 millitorr, after a few minutes of startup fluctuation.
- I recommend buyer uses the flushing fluid prior to refilling with Duo Seal Pump Oil.
- Currently is filled with oil, but will be drained for transport.


Diffusion Pump - $250
- https://photos.app.goo.gl/ax4kvZzp4QwDAhDd8
- Includes:
.... Air cooled diffusion pump
.... Adapter plate for CF 3 3/8
.... Diffusion Pump Fluid 704BB, approx 300 ml remain in container
.... Power cords, Power/Current/Voltage meter, Vacuum Tubing, O-Ring
.... Manual
- I have drained and twice rinsed with Acetone.
- You may also want to buy the Bellows Valve CF 3 3/8, it attaches to the adapter plate.
- The diff pump takes 15 minutes to heat up to the point that it is pumping.
- During the first 14 minutes, the chamber pressure may increases due to off gassing.
- After about 15 minutes the chamber pressure falls quickly to < 0.5 mTorr.
- The fan starts slow for about 1 minute, and then speeds up to a powerful flow.


Thermocouple Vacuum Gauge - $75
- https://photos.app.goo.gl/aD23isfiR7ztt5JL8
- Includes:
.... Varian 0531 Tube, attached to KF-25 adapter
.... Varian 804-A Controller, I used gauge number 2.
.... Cable and power cord


Pirani Vacuum Gauge - $125
- https://photos.app.goo.gl/3HJytwniUhKB5xaA9
- Includes:
.... Kurt J Lesker Co 275i Series Convection Vacuum Gauge Module, KF25, Log Linear

Bellows Valve, CF 3 3/8 - $150
- https://photos.app.goo.gl/uA5D9daAidvCCsTf6
- https://www.idealvac.com/product/pp/P103937


Bellows Valve KF-25 - $100
- https://photos.app.goo.gl/4k278XYWJk3oxbmu9
- https://www.idealvac.com/product/pp/P103784


Bellows Valve CF 1 1/3 - $125
- https://photos.app.goo.gl/vZPpaUk6pEfgZvNM9
- https://www.idealvac.com/product/pp/P103843


Air Admittance Vent Valve + 4 way KF25 cross - $100
- https://photos.app.goo.gl/rqBUvS5yY4uLsgGp8
- Includes:
.... Air Admittance Vent Valve - https://www.idealvac.com/product/pp/P103899
.... 4 way KF25 cross - https://www.idealvac.com/product/pp/P101206


Deuterium Gas and Regulator - $100
- https://photos.app.goo.gl/Zd3T8o22naZXxWCA9
- Includes:
.... Deuterium Gas in lecture bottle, last fusor run was Dec 12, 2020. (Photo taken 12/12/2020 shows 500 PSI remaining)
.... Pressure Regulator
.... Canister Stand
.... Gaskets
- Take care to conserve the Deuterium.
- With the regulator seated, quickly open and close the Deuterium tank main valve. This will fill the regulator with Deuterium, which will be enough to run the fusor for a while, depending on how limitted the gas flow rate is. My experience is about 10 - 20 minute duration.


Neutron Detector System - $200
- https://photos.app.goo.gl/WZmieCzo8ySaH5BSA
- Includes:
.... He-3 Neutron Detector Proportional Counter Tube СИ-19Н
.... Ludlum Model 2929 Dual Channel Scaler - https://ludlums.com/images/product_manuals/M2929.pdf (link to recent manual)
.... ADC, 500k samples/sec - https://microdaq.com/measurement-comput ... 04-daq.php
.... Raspberry Pi 3 Model B (Revision: a02082) (1GB RAM, 32GB SDcard)
.... Keyboard and Monitor
.... HDPE Moderator
- A detailed description and the C Language software are here: https://github.com/sthaid/proj_neutron
- The software is already installed on the Raspberry Pi.


Power Supply Using Car Amp, Home Wound Xformer, and 5x Voltage Multiplier - $200
- https://photos.app.goo.gl/u7b5NRRo4mxhpVG29
- Includes:
.... Direct Digital Synthesis Signal Generator
.... Eyeboot Power Supply
.... Planet Audio 2600 Watt Bridgeable Car Amplifier
.... Two analog meters used to measure the output voltage from the car amp and transformer
.... Transformer cores, and windings
.... 5X Voltage Multiplier
.... Oil for 5X Voltage Multiplier
.... 2 Multimeters, bluetooth capable
.... Ballast resistor
.... 1G ohm resistor
- Reference: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=13134
- This power supply outperformed the X-Ray Transformer based power supply that I had previously used. This supply output: 36 kV and 7.2 mA.
- Buyer should build an enclosure to prevent accidental access to high voltages.


Power Supply Parts using X-Ray Xformer - $150
- https://photos.app.goo.gl/hqU5SMHBkqgbHZAN6
- Includes:
.... Transformer
.... Container
.... Diodes x6, each 2A-20KV
.... Ballast Resistor, 50K ohm
.... Used Mineral Oil
- White and black wires are AC primary, these should connect to a Variac.
- Red wires are the High Voltage secondary.
- Green is ground.
- These components were used in my first fusor power supply, 30 kV and 6 mA. Neutrons were detected at this voltage and current.
- Take care to avoid slow siphoning of the mineral oil through the HV wires.


Electrical Feedthrough and grid, CF 2 3/4 - $150
- https://photos.app.goo.gl/gNM5gFKRf9gEieDW8
- Includes:
.... feedthrough, CF 2 3/4
.... grid, tantalum wire, wire diameter 0.065", grid diameter 1.5"
.... nested Alumina stalk insulators
- I don't have specs for the feedthrough.
- I have run the fusor up to 36 kV without arcing.


Gas Flow Reducer - $20
- https://photos.app.goo.gl/uipqAPjVM324vU9Y7
- Includes:
.... Tygon Micro Bore Tubing .020" ID .060" OD, 100 ft
.... Tube barbs
.... 304 SS Hypo Tube .01 ID x .02 OD, 30" x 3
- Reference web sites:
.... https://componentsupplycompany.com/prod ... robore.php
.... https://componentsupplycompany.com/prod ... s-luer.php
- My original plan was to use the 7.5 ft of Hypo tube. However this did not reduce the flow sufficiently. So, I added the 100 ft of Tygon Micro Bore Tubing.
- The Hypo Tube has half the ID of the Micro Bore Tubing. This implies that the 7.5 ft of Hypo tubing would have an equivalent resistance to gas flow as 30 ft of the Micro Bore Tubing. Therefore the Micro Bore Tubing alone would probably have been adequate.
- Having just reviewed the componentsupplycompany.com web site. There is .010" ID Micro Bore Tubing available, which could be a better choice.

I will start shipping of other items now. Except the following will not be shipped:
- mineral oil or diff pump oil
- forepump
It will take me about one week to ship items.
And shipping costs will be added.

Shame about US sales only, parts are hard to come by over here, in AU, and we only get around 70Cents to the USD. Not to worry, will still keep plugging away at the fusor build.
