Richard is quiet correct in sternly warning of the danger of using disemboweled microwave oven components in any experimentation. The Federal Government issues stringent regulations covering the manufacture of any microwave oven sold in the U.S. and it is a violation of Federal Law to disassemble and subsequently operate microwave oven components (i.e. the magnetron). The microwave oven is a "radiation emitting device" and each and every one is checked thoroughly for shielding and leakage before being sold.
