    Hi
    small update
    as usually i havn't found dremel diamond cutting disk, i will try with a diamond mill for dentist, maybe blocked on lathe.
    I made a sort of pattern from steel on lathe, work is not so nice to see, but size is good, I really don't know if this template will be good for modelling the chamber or not, but for sure i'll try! I think I will try your advice of modified plyers, and then melt glass on glass to reach some thickness

    The others parts are new clamps for tungsten and the small one is the central point of earth (GND, don't know if it's the right name) in brass, drilled and threaded , i need some inox grains. hope tomorrow with polished tube plate i will start welding circuit and power supply... i'm curious to see the flame

    Main parts done, not a perfect job, too many bad things linked to the thin 1,5mm frame, too thin for my welder. the tip for Gnd is solid and make good connection, i changed the front black screw m3 with inox type, same for tube sockets.
    I left the left panel unpolished because I have to drill holes for horn, coils, faraday and other minor parts.
    I'm thinking about some fairlead or guides for cables, for sure main 230ac have to run from behind to front panel switch, , 6 cables for low voltage 6,3 and 12,6v filaments, and 2 different B+.
    I decided to put an xlr connector to the right side, near the lateral potentiometer, close to the pcl82 triode grid. Hope I'll not need for shielded cables!

    and now I think I can start welding circuit and making big boooooom!

    Oh My! That looks Great!! I'd probably shield the hi-voltage lines for sure, especially on an all metal chassis. Looking forward to the Boooom! ~PJ

    hi!
    small update again! I was a little busy, i only made a frame part helpful for keeping coil and last capacitor in position. I started to weld circuit, maybe a pcb can be more practical, i chose point to point. Hope Tomorrow I finish! Lot of time spent putting insulator and welding wire around, I have to think a better layout for the next plasma!
    In this days I'm better in kitchen! I made the queen of cakes: crostata peer and chocolate! imho the best cake ever made

    hope the next update i will show you some spark!
    In the plasma pics, the ensemble horn-chamber-primary coil and clamps is only for scene, I will drill the panel when i will sure that everything will be ok

    C-Bag!! Funny my SO and I were just talking about chocolate pie the other day...my mom made the Best...Sorry Stefano, but it does look good and creamy.

    Getting there Stefano and looks good! Would be interested to see a better picture of the HV coupling to your plasma tube if you get a chance.

    Thanks! ~PJ

    Hi! just finished welding 95% of circuit, have to think some kind of berths and facilitations like B+ points and other things. Space is really low, noval sockets are tiny and some resistor are big, the mix is not ideal
    It's not so good to see, many cables around, that with more space or better layout can be placed better. 3 different B+ and 3 different low voltage filament. plus audio in and 2 wire for tesla coil and ring. The welding are good and bright with old tin with lead philips.
    Tomorrow I'll take some pics, sorry I got some problems to understand the part "HV coupling to your plasma tube". On pin 6 of gu50 (anode) i have a capacitor that cut dc from coil. It's that part?

    PS: thanks for the request, i see now a mistake right in this part!
