Hello and do read up on demo fusors. A good start would be to read on what is required to get into the plasma club. This doesn't require a fusor chamber nor a fusor level vacuum nor much of a power system. It does offer a great first step and the critical parts for a demo fusor.

Be sure to read the new requirements for admission to the "plasma club". In short, the grid must be better than a jumble of wire (a neatly formed "Mirio" spiral grid is OK). You also must have a voltmeter and millamp meter measuring the supply voltage and current to the demo fusor. Details are in the FAQs
The more reactive the materials, the more spectacular the failures.
The testing isn't over until the prototype is destroyed.
