Grid
Hi, this is my first time building a fusor and i wanted to know what do you think about my inner and outer grid. My intention is to build a demo fusor.

This is a mockup, of course..

This setup should work OK in a low power demo system. Too much current in a vacuum will see all of that fine wire glow red, then orange, then white, then melt.

Thermally, the inner grid will always be the weakest link in any fusor system. This is due to the fact that 100% of the waste heat from bombardment and emission from that electrode will usually have no thermal sink of significance beyond its poorly connected conductive stalk.

Soon i will have the chance to run everything so will play around with the voltage to achieve some plasma for obvious reasons im no expecting fusion. But i do hope i get the plasma. Any other recomendations will help thankyou.
