I got a asmall plasma cutter 110volt. is it possible to make it cut thicker material?? or do i have to use bigger transformers and stuff?? i dont no much about the plasma cutters. was also wondering if i could some how hook it to a lincon 225 stick welder? thanks for any help

I was trying to fix my friend's magnavox plasma tv. I did the fat-topped cap replacement on the Y board and now There is no voltages from the P.S. I had them before pulling the Y board to replace the cap. NowI only have +5V and -17V on the Vscan TP.

I bought 2 50" plasma tvs at an auction for $105 and found out they don't work. I've identified the error messages and downloaded the service manuals. But the manuals require I test certain boards and I don't know how to do that. I can't afford to spend $400-$800 to have a repairman fix them (someone at Justanswer told me that's what the charge will likely be). What can I do with these? Are the parts reusable for something else?

Why does a matchstick light up when one places a coin on a plasma globe, uses a paper clip to hover around the coin while holding the matchstick alongside the paper clip? (note the video does not use a matchstick, but it still applies the same concept)
My freind is letting me use his CNC plasma cutter & so I thought It would be nice of me to offer to every here on intructibles to make them a plasma cut sign like in the pictures. right now the price of 1/4'' steel is about $2.50 per square foot where I live. The CNC plasma cutter makes really nice looking signs and can even cut out pictures, I can take a regular picture of a deer, an elk, a bear and cut it out. just look at the pictures below to get an idea. If you want me to cut you a sign out you can post a comment below and we will talk and fine tune the cost down. I prefer money orders, they are much safer for all of us. just not as quick. Thanks, Daniel

Hello, Just a few things you should know first: This is my first post on Instructables, and I am kind of new to electronics. I have a very old outlet powered electric fence charger that I recently took apart because it was broken. I took out the transformer and hooked it up to the wall (110v 60hz) bypassing a large resistor and capacitor and was able to get a stable arc of plasma about 1/4" long. As best i could tell the transformer does not have an internal rectifier so the output was AC. As for the voltage and the amps I can't tell, The limit of my multimeter is 500v and it went past that even with the resistor and capacitor hooked up to it and the output voltage is not labeled on it. I am hoping to connect a Flyback Transformer to this to make a Jacob's Ladder and possibly experiment with some plasma. I do not yet have one but I am currently looking at a few on Ebay that are standard in Sony TVs. So i guess my questions would be: Is it safe to connect a flyback transformer to it? Is it even safe to hook up 2 transformers in that manner? Would it burn it out? And what kind of Voltage could I expect out of it? Would that kind or brand work well? Any help would be appreciated, Thanks.

Kid Robot's Dunny doll gets electrified when Dustin Cantrell puts plasma globes in 'em. The rest of the design is suitably space-y and the platforms complete the effect really well. It's a simple mod (like I'm one to complain about that), but it's pulled off well. Link

If so what gasses should be used and what gauss magnets should be used to help contain the plasma? I also would like to know how much energy it would feasibly produce and if that energy would be more than the amount put in. Finally, what coils besides a field coil should be used?

Since the plasma TV I found in a dumpster this month does not work (missing the power supply board), I took the boards apart for parts. Now I arrived at the screen. To my surprise it was no LCD, but a plasma screen. As I understand, every pixel has 3 miniature fluorescent tubes in it. Would it be possible to use /convert as a light fixture? (some specs: V=5.25 V, Va= 65V, Vs= 125V, max 300W when white)

I was thinking about building a homemade plasma cutter. My plan would be to use two linked microwave transformers to step up wall voltage to ~ 50,000 volts. I would use welding carbons in the end of a copper pipe, nozzle, etc, so that an arc would be generated inside of the nozzle. I would then have a PVC assembly that would take compressed air and force it past the arc, and thus generate a spray of plasma? I KNOW how regular plasma cutters work, I was just wondering about this design out of curiosity, but I know there is likely some flaw (e.g. the arc isn't drawn to the work, etc.) that I haven't thought of. Advice is appreciated. Thanks! P.S. What, if this design works, would stop me from using this to weld? i know that the plasma is too hot, i would just keep the torch a distance away from the work. Or would the air contaminate the weld? Thanks! EDIT: I know how traditional plasma cutters work. I don't want to strike an arc with the workpiece. I want to create an arc in the device and used compressed air to blow the plasma onto the work. Also, i think i could use a smaller power supply, say 7.5 KV to generate that arc, without MOT's.

I'm planning on doing a little bit of high-voltage work ( see my plasma cutter question), and I know most of the theory ( except why HV AC in power lines wants to go to Earth ground--any answers to that are welcome. I have my own theories, but...), but I have really no practical experience at all with high ( 50,000 volts) voltage, i.e. what gauge of wire to use, what gloves to wear, how to ground a metal container, etc. Any advice is welcome. Thanks!

Hello everyone, I am trying to build a plasma torch. What is a plasma torch you might ask? A plasma torch is used in a process call plasma arc gasification. I want to build a small scale working prototype for proof of concept. If anyone could help, it would be great. I can collect different MOTs or NSTs if necessary, just fill me in. Thanks for any input or direction.

Hi there, i though i would post this here, as to draw attention, and also allow discussion.Due to making more and more items, i am running out of room.so, sadly, i am going to be selling my loved plasma rifle.You can see the construction and build quality here *Plasma Rifle -ible*All proceeds from the auction will be donated to Crimestoppers, who help out with a lot of anti-knife and gun crime over here in the UK, whom also happen to be having an anti-kife and gun week soon. the charity can be found here CrimestoppersI think the best way to sell this, is with a private auction. Basically, send me a private message, and the highest amount wins.The auction will end next saturday at 1.00am BST(note - if the private auction does not work, or for some reason not permitted i will then post the item on ebay)The rifle itself makes for a great conversation piece, to sit as part of your collection. Or for use in your latest indie film!Thanks for reading.Jakeps, this i also posted this topic under market place, but i wasn't sure wether that was the right place, or here.

I'm trying to find an inexpensive power supply solution for a LUXIM Li-Fi Plasma Lighting source. The RF generator requires 28VDC at 250W is there some combination of voltage rails on an ATX power supply that could be utilized to provide 28VDC @ 8.3A? is there a way that the voltage could be slightly boosted or cut by a couple of volts?

Pic links below. So I have a 58” Samsung Plasma Model: PN55. It is having the clicking on and off problem. Apparently a lot of these TV’s are having the same issue. After I researched into it the general issue was capacitors going bad on the power board. I removed my board and inspected it and see no problems with anything. The board from what I have been told was replaced a year or so ago but I cant confirm that. So my question is: What other things can I try / test to help narrow down the issue? Here is where I am at: I have the X and Y boards unplugged so just the Power board, main video board and main logic board are plugged in. The TV will not do anything with atleast those 3 plugged in. I am leaning to the main video board as the fault since I know it has not been replaced. And from what I understand the power may loop into the power board, then go into the main video board then back into the power board. I have messed with electronics some but would consider myself between a noob and a novice, but I am willing to try anything since I will be buying replacement boards if I cant figure it out. The relay that clicks is on the top left. The power comes in on the bottom left and then out/in to the video board on the bottom right. I didn’t know if there was a way to test the voltage or something coming back in from the video board, the plug has a pin explanation next to it. Thanks in advance for any help.
