Some colleagues and I are getting ready to embark upon a fusor project. We're starting from scratch, and have decided to start out by building a stable DC power supply suitable for fusor work.

Can anyone suggest good sources for components that will allow us to get up to the 25-30kv range?

I've checked out a local electronics flea market, and one or two surplus places, and haven't found the crucial transformer or caps necessary for a good linear supply.

This shouldn't be too difficult, since we're in the Silicon Valley, and I've made a few trips to LLNL to check out some of their auction items.

Thanks for any scrounging advice,
