But from what direction are the particles hitting
the grid with the most impact. You may not be able
to use a external magnet for the right shaped
field to have a impact on the most bothersome
impacts.And it sounds like scattering to me too.

Could one run a current thru the fusor internal grid to generate a magnetic field and see what happens?
