Re: Baird STILL gets the credit !!

... never had a real base of manufacture for his disector tubes anyway until the early 50's when they were sold in quantity by ITT (Farnsworth's old Pontiac street plant) to the Defense department. I have seen boxes for these tubes and they were sold under the Federal, Farnsworth and ITT labels.<br/> ...

Re: Anomalous event

... levels of the more sophisticated, ion-gunned versions, but what you describe sounds very much like the kind of "runaway" event encountered in the Pontiac Street labs. <br/> <br/> 2nd, that leads me (and I am NOT the most well-informed observer here) to believe that the real power in these devices ...

Re: Fusor identification

I believe this is the one known as "Two Prime." It's one of the machines that Gene Meeks was most familiar with, and produced some of the best numbers in the Pontiac St. lab.

Running out of the patents.

<t>With Jon's production rate of 1.6 x 10^6 neutrons per second the group is rapidly approaching the fabled<br/> 1 x 10^9 of the Pontiac Fusor effort . Without the cash of ITT amateurs have come within 10^3 of that production on a shoe string. I think once Richard gets Fusor IV rolling ...

<r><br/> I was very fortunate to spend most of this past weekend in the company of Richard Hull and two veterans of the Pontiac Street ITT/Farnsworth fusion lab, Gene Meeks and Steve Blaising.<br/> <br/> I'd met Gene Meeks on one previous occasion, but this was my first encounter with ...

Fort Wayne Visit
