I dropped the nuclear fires in the fusor to make up a more substantial and higher voltage supply.

I spent most of the weekend hacking an old X-ray supply into something useful.

After a lot of PCB soaked hands, a lot of drilling and two removals and replacements of the oil tanked transformer's 72 screws and nuts, I have made up a nice DC supply of 0-40KV which can handle up to 50ma.

The 130lb tub of steel, oil and copper gave me quite a workout over Saturday and Sunday.

Now to rearrange the fusor III, itself.
