Re: Removing GFI from a Franceformer.

<t>Hi Steffan,<br/> <br/> Thanks for sharing - since a lot (or all) of the newer NSTs are made this way, this could be really helpful to people wanting to do HV experiments.<br/> I shelved the Franceformer NST after being frustrated with the GFI. If I find a new project for it I'll give your techniq...

Re: West Coast HEAS Realtime Pictures

<t>Great to see you all yesterday.<br/> Topics of discussion were wide and varied and ranged from fusor construction and theory to neutron detection to the nature of irrational numbers and entropy.<br/> The West Coast HEAS was definitely a more low key and intimate gathering than the East Coast orig...

Re: 3D ceramic printing.

<t>I messed around with that castable stuff from Cotronics, but it shrank a lot when it dried and I had problems with it cracking. What made me give up on it though was that I realized it was very porous and most likely terrible for any vacuum applications. It might be fine for creating custom insul...

Re: 3D ceramic printing.

The other option might be machinable ceramics like Macor, but I can't speak from experience about how they are to work with or how they perform.

Re: Fusor Chamber 101

Nice George. What's the inside diameter of the chamber?

Radioactive Paradise: Bikini Atoll revisited

<r>I don't think this has been posted before, and I'm not sure if this was the best forum for it...<br/> This is a show that aired on Discovery science where scientists revisit Bikini Atoll to see how the nuclear tests have affected the ecosystem and to see how much detectable radiation lingers toda...

Re: HEAS 10/02 and the Future of fusor.net

<t>I only skimmed the previous comments, so sorry if I'm repeating, but In my opinion, the easiest and maybe best solution is just to have an "off topic" section that these threads can be moved to and quarantined. This section should not show up on the "Recent Threads" page if possible.<br/> <br/> S...

Re: West Coast HEAS 2010

Yep, I'm still in San Diego. I still lurk around here on the forum too, even though I haven't been posting much in the last couple years - I at least check the recent threads topic list every day.
I hope everyone has a great East coast HEAS.
