Documenting the inception and build of the Heatsync Labs Scanning Electron Microscope
Step 1 is to create a vacuum. Obviously we need a vacuum chamber to do this.
Heatsync raised $400 in order to purchase this surplus aluminum vacuum chamber and I fronted the extra $400 required to cover the chamber and the dual vain rotary pump. THANK YOU to everyone who pitched in to help!!
A course vacuum was achieved within days, however it was discovered that there was a leak…. When we attempted to fix the leak, the main valve of the chamber sheared off inside the chamber…
