Like me, I'm sure those seeking information on Farnsworth's fusor have been bouncing around all the resources available trying to glean together enough information to start a fusor project. The information you have posted here has accelerated my own work tremendously. Joshua's fusor bears a striking resemblance to a "Plasma Drive" device I stumbled upon recently, even to the reference of the "plasma jet". All it seems to lack are a fuel injector, an accelerator ring and the vacuum of space. I have many questions, but for now I'm off to find vacuum, wire and hours of free time! Thanks for sharing the info.
