What can I do with a magnetron, while still being reasonably safe? Answered
I have recently disassembled a microwave to discover that practically all the internal electronic components are still functional (all except the chassis and bezel - even the lightbulbs were still intact). That includes the magnetron, transformer, HV capacitor, and high-power diode needed to turn 120VAC into a microwave beam. So, what sort of interesting, things can one even do with a magnetron, anyway, while being at least reasonably safe. I'm no wimp, but getting widespread internal 2nd degree burns is no picnic either.
Any ideas for things I can do with those parts?
