Re: Neutron detector build

I was merely warning all who use the Russian tubes to take all precautions with biasing to eliminate all detections other than neutron detections. Not everyone is a careful or knowledgeable electronics person, nor do all people have materials at hand to warrant only neutrons are detected. No neutron...

Re: We've got plasma!

Good work with the spherical grid. I have placed both names in the plasma club listing.

Re: Neutron detector build

Remember.....Once you think you are detecting neutrons to put a very hot piece of U ore near the naked tube. If it counts....You are not actually counting only neutrons. Boron lined tubes are tricky to bias.

Re: My Setup so far, and Finally Under Vacuum!!!

Great warning John! I think I would design some special "chocks" for all wheels when the cart was in a more or less permanent run position and remove them for storage or movement to another location.

Re: Commentary on Doing Fusion

I have altered the rules! I note that we would like to have at least a 13-14 year old high schooler claim fusion and suffer the standard requirements. I also note that anyone younger than this will have to adhere rigidly to the 90+ day history of keeping us up to date on his or her progress and may ...

Re: Commentary on Doing Fusion

I would OK the 9th grade/high school requirement. I will never yield the long posting history, with images on fusor.net prior to any claim of success by anyone including a 30 year old. That is a rule set in stone.

FAQ - Space for your fusor....Before you build

A full fusion system will take up some space in your home or garage. The vast majority of fusors are built in apartments or in private homes. We tend to pack our space with stuff and spare rooms or even garages can get cramped as the fusor construction moves forward. The best permanent step-ups are ...
