Oscilloscopes

<t>Some recent discussion has occurred involving O'scopes.<br/> <br/> While an O'scope is a Godsend for electronic technicains and engineers, it is NOT a must have item for our sort of nuclear work in the most casual of efforts.<br/> <br/> However, with hamfests and offerings of really first class i...

Adam parker's system

<t>The photo in the current image du jour of Adam's system is nice. It reminds me of fusor II which I operated for over a year. There were no jets or quills in his photo and this shows his vacuum is fairly good. (jets, bugles and quills disappear at about 20 microns.)<br/> <br/> I know what he means...

Re: recirculation - acceleration

<t>Dave is, of course, correct. The fusor MFP is subject to variations not seen in a cool laboratory vacuum gas and ideal gas laws. We are never doing the classic thermal ion fusion in a uniformly heated plasma in the fusor. The fusor has no real maxwellian form factor associated with bulk heater ty...

NIF (National Ignition Facility) reports, comments

<t>I have posted in the LINKS forum all the data needed for you to access all the reports related to this debacle. There is new stuff, too.<br/> <br/> NOTE I made a mistake in the URL originally and it is now corrected in the LINKS forum. (works OK)<br/> <br/> It seems that every one involved with t...

NIF saga

<r>The painful tale goes on and on.....<br/> Need to let some bile flow regarding fusion?<br/> Want to know the size and type of rat hole that sucked up your most recent fusion tax dollars?<br/> <br/> The GAO bloodhounds sniffed out all the rats, but only after they ate all th' cheese and had the gu...

Re: Spot-welding cathode grids

<t>Carl is not alone in trying to spot weld. I used to use a 60amp 5volt AC filament transformer for spot welding. It worked fairly well. The key is to obtain spot welding electrodes. They are a special non-stick form of phosphorus laden copper alloy. Many full line welding suppliers have these on h...

Re: Fusion - 'Untwisting' particles?

<t>I agree with Dave Cooper on the concepts useful for working with the electron, for that is all we can do is work with the concepts to make real world things happen. The concepts were hammered out over a long time. Whether they have any genuine physical embodiment is anyone's guess.<br/> <br/> It ...

Re: valve flange type?

That gate valve was designed to go on CVCs small 2" diff pump which came in two versions a 4 bolt and a 6 bolt flanged item. You have the 6 bolt version's gate valve.
