Live Life Learning

Post by John Borsheim » Wed Jun 16, 2021 3:23 pm

I am mechanical engineer and own a test lab in Austin providing product test services with a home-based machine shop to support repairs and fixture fabrication. I am a beekeeper interested in starting electron beam research, and looking to learn. (Note, the bees will not be used in the ebr, lol)

Welcome and e-beams have a lot of uses; could you post in the new user area some details on that setup and what you do?

Dennis, thank you so much for the warm welcome! I absolutely will post some pics of the setup and also what I'm up to as well! Give it time though, since I'm somewhat slow at getting things going :) On another subject, I am contemplating on modifying an old flat-belt driven lathe to make a glass lathe - an encoder on the main spindle, and fabricating a low-spin-moment-of-inertial tail spindle that will be driven with a stepper motor in lock-step with the main spindle. You good folks probably have done this lathe setup here somewhere, I will go use the search button and see what I can dig up...

Hello again and certainly that Lathe project is worth posting here too; projects like that are also related to fusion since lab apparatus related devices are important, also.
