Re: Salutations from Birmingham

Re: Reactor Update - 4/22/18

There isn't a professional fusor setup without professional clamps! There isn't an upgrade necessarily with the deuterium line, but just fabricating a new one and fitting it into my compact setup is an endeavor that I'm not interested in right now.

Re: Can I make my own ConFlat flanges?

Yes, it's possible to reach pressures low enough for fusion with a homemade flange. The real question is whether or not YOU Are capable of making a good enough flange. Unless you have experience with precision machining your chances of creating a usable flange are very low. You would be far better o...
