Yeah holiday, I think you might do better to head over to the recycling center and see what they'll give you instead... not sure that I'd want to taken my chances with someone on Craigslist coming to outfit their Saab with some new bling! Just sayin'...

This is what tedium looks like in the last two days, I have installed EVERY bolt on this thing:



I spent the day monday putting the covers on, and torquing them, by hand.



Then tuesday came around, and I brought this guy from home:



Awesome little doodad.

Artsy and/or fartsy:







Thought it was too cool looking not to share.

I took this picture outside of Sears. She was having fits because I wouldn't let her dig through all the hardware bins.

Leak checking a chamber that complex must be a horrible pain in the behind! Is it some kind of deposition tool?

Oh yeah, ha. Sorry.

It's a vacuum chamber for a pulse plasma experiment in the lab I work in. Should be sealed up tight enough to achieve pressures of 10^10 torr (for reference: a torr is 1/760th of an atmosphere). The seals are those copper rings in the picture with the quarter, the covers are torqued so the knife edge deforms the copper and creates a seal. The chamber is a salvaged unit (with ports upon ports with some extra ports thrown in for good measure), but the hardware and the covers (the large covers are about $200 a pop) are all brand spanking new.

I believe the thinking is that inside the vacuum, a plasma will be submitted to an electromagnetic field with the hopes that the field creates a point of compression and, ideally, thermonuclear fusion

Or, it's a time machine. Who knows- I'm just paid to turn wrenches.

That comes tomorrow, should be a party. Thankfully leaks into a vacuum aren't that difficult to find with an active pump and a pressure gauge- squirting just about any liquid on the flanges of a port will, if there's a leak, draw the liquid in, and then the liquid will expand rapidly, increasing the pressure by a power of 10 or more. It's pretty obvious. That doesn't mean it won't be tedious though.

As a total aside, when I worked fixing cars, one of the most tried and true ways to find a vacuum leak was to wave an unlit propane torch around the vacuum lines of an idling engine and listen for the increase in idle speed.

SCIENCE!

Neat. I work in the more-or-less semiconductor field, although I haven't had any direct ownership of vacuum tools. Hopefully I'll find work again soon. Most of the troubleshooting I've observed has been done with helium sniffing.

My son's taking over! The community band played a fun concert tonight, including Godzilla Eats Las Vegas, a pieces that's supposed to be corny-cheesy. My son played the role perfectly on piano.

My community alternative transportation event went very well today. Many bikes were fixed and even more people were pumped up for summer. Truly awesome to give back like that. Spent the day riding tandems and a tall bike I made a while back.

Yours truly:
