Re: Build a HV bias meter for free.

By the way, the little DVM voltmeter has a transistor checker, a diode checker, a continuity checker, ohm meter, ammeter just like a $200 Fluke and similar accuracy....Far more accuracy than you will need for simple projects. All this for free or $5.99, your choice. I am up to 106 of 'em and have a ...

Re: MATER-1

Scott, I will log this into the neutron club as a team effort without the UMd tag. Your last two images are indicative of real fusion taking place. While not absolutely conclusive in and of itself, these images are the most characteristically observed fusion symbols in the visual sense. Great work a...

Re: TIG welding tubing and flanges with an automated fixture

Jerry is correct. If the metal is thick enough, the weld current controlled intelligently and the work held fast, most vacuum welding is possible without filler rod. For 1/4" thick ++ flanges a machined grove around the inside of the flange hole will supply all the filler material for a pipe to be w...

Re: A theory of a possible method of fusion

We humans are big bags of water.... we are water logged meat engines. The micro wave oven frequency was tuned for cooking wet meat and other water loaded food substances. Our bodies like to fully absorb 2.45 Ghz RF energy and fast neutrons. Your health, your choce!

Re: A bit more on hamfesting (buying and selling)

I had a $2500 Pace setup at work that we bought in 2000. I used it for about 6 years on and off. This worked out great until the transistors and resistors became smaller and smaller by a factor of 3X or 4X and the solder runs started being pulled up in the de-soldering process. Finally, all the indi...

Re: Optimal Deuterium Gas Pressure?

No such equation exists, period. As Dennis notes the pressure/voltage will be determined by the size type and configuration of a specific fusor system. The optimum pressure is whatever it turns out to be for a given system configuration and power supply. In all cases, fusor output energy per unit in...

Re: Calculation for Deuterium Pressure?

Reading the FAQs would answer all of your questions. In general, more pressure means more nuclear fuel you have to fuse. The higher the pressure, the better. Flies buzz around this ointment, however. More pressure means early onset of arc conditions at lower voltages. Arcing does little but burn up ...

You question is answered in firm and certain terms in the URL I supplied in the above posting. It is my manifesto on hamfesting. Here goes..... Everything is sold as is! You buy it, you own it! No crying in your beer, no whining, just wheeling and dealing. No excuses given or accepted. In general, y...

Re: Update on Reactor Plasma Imaging Project

Congratulations. We have another winner at the Intel International science fair! I think there were two, maybe three others from the forums who won big time based on their use of a fusor in the past.
