Re: Fusors and Maxwell's Equations

... receive the device the moment they hear the word "nuclear" or "fusion". Thoughts of explosions (or implosions) rattle in the minds of folks in the safety department or the facilities management department who do not come from very strong physics, science, or engineering backgrounds. They thought ...

Re: Flexible Deuterium Gas Input Hose?

... vacuum or small positive pressure (i.e. with flow restricting orifice downstream). For the latter case, an upstream flow limit would be good for safety. Then if gas hose popped off at the fusor end, and magically caught fire, it wouldn't writhe around and be hard to catch. :-) Now let's wait ...

Total newbie

... and i have the mechanical knowledge to want to try, im gonna be asking so many questions 😂 what are the parts needed for a basic fusor setup? What safety precautions should i take? where would i get these things? Ebay? Im a total newbie, all ive done with high voltage and such is play with MOTs.

Re: Creation, usage, and destruction of a cathode

... learning a lot during your fusor work. I like your set up, and it looks like you want to keep yourself safe. I would like to offer an important safety tip to keep you and others out of trouble. I noticed that you used an alligator clip to fasten your ground to your chamber. Those kinds of clips ...

... available system.) The Candu reactor is the most likely fission reactor design that can be built in a cost effective manner while offering maximum safety. Unfortunately, it is useless as a submarine reactor. So, the US nuclear industry will not build such a reactor (i.e. natural uranium and heavy ...

Hello from Melbourne Florida

... in 3rd grade.Now I'm in 5th grade. I made my demo furor earlier this year and now I want to make a functional fusing fusion reactor. For safety reasons I have a mentor so I don't blow myself up. I'm reading the book "The Boy how Played with Fusion" and it is a good book and very inspiring ...

My teammate and I have been working hard on this, and based off data take from Stano, Michal and Raèko, Michal [1] were able to estimate ...

Re: Harbor Freight freebie meters

I'm not sure if the meter ratings should be Considered ridiculous safety nerd stuff. I'm not willing to use HF meters, or most other cheapie meters, on moderate-voltage high-current stuff like wall current.

Re: Harbor Freight freebie meters

... and in the case of the free H.F. meters you get far more value than you pay for. The new batch of H.F. free meters, probably to satisfy ridiculous safety nerd standards, no longer have a 1KV DC range or a 750volt AC range. All ranges end at 200-250 volts AC or DC. They are still 1 meg input impedance. ...

Re: Neon sign transformer, AC to DC

Does that mean you are not interested in a wiki at all or does that mean you are not interested in a wiki that contains articles, that would compress the topic too much (e.g. leaving out safety precations) , Richard ?
