>Those looking to do a cheapo demo fusor might want to look into the possibility of using glass process pipe as the vacuum vessel. It is made of thick - walled pyrex, and as far as I know, is available in sizes up to 6" diameter, with ends shaped to take an o-ring seal. Tees and crosses are available, as well as standard gaskets and clamps.

This is a good idea.

This seems like an easy way to get started and with the same kinds of precautions as taken for Bell Jars should work just fine.

You guys come up with some good options.
