Hello everyone. I have read many articles on this site and decided it was time to join.
I stated building high vacuum systems a few years back and I have built up several diffusion pump based systems.
I also play with high voltage projects such as Tesla coils, but now focus on HV inside a vacuum chamber.

I am now retired and spend my time building interesting projects, several have been shown in "The Bell Jar".
I like restoring old test equipment and I am a very good amateur machinist, which is required for many projects.
I have built some of the projects in Prutchi's book "Exploring Quantum Physics through hands-on Projects".
I recently built the PMT amplifier shown in his book. Someday I would like to figure out how to connect it to an MCA.

One future project of interest is a cold trap using Peltier Coolers.

Looking forward to conversing with all of you.

Hello and welcome; someone with your experience and skills can offer a lot of useful advice to others here. Surprised your not building a fusor considering your talents and interests.

Also, do note that every major forum header has FAQ's filled with a host of important fusor information related to that topic area; great to read for fusor details.
