Richard, if we could get a detailed block diagram of Joes fusor device, so as to make construction of our own machines a little easier and be sure of not leaving anything out as we get bits welded up or machined. Stuff like calibrated leaks etc. whose use are not readily apparent would be real handy.


I agree. I will struggle through getting such a diagram made up. The Zambelli fusor and all simple fusors are made exactly alike. The block diagram is general and only different levels of sophistication exist in the exact form of the items needed. I use a $45.00 Swagelock micro needle valve to adjust my gas flow. Joe uses a $1700.00 calibrated, jeweled, leak valve. he is working with a slop of 10 turns of the valve to set the flow of D2 I am deal with 1/4 turn. I just set a pressure in the system. He can warrant the exact flow rate off of his marked thimble. Of course, he just sets his pressure level too and doesn't give a hoot about the flow rate as long as the pressure is stable, just like me.

I will probably throw the diagram up on my website soon. More later.
