A rumble in the distance. Big things are coming.
So, I don't wanna get toooooooo excited yet, but today was a very big day. I've talked before how before this I worked on nuclear fusion. So I'm quite used to vacuum systems and everything that goes along with them. This importantly covers coating of things with other things that you can't normally coat them with. Things like titanium nitride, or diamond. I've spent the last little while rebuilding my old setup since making some of the high tech materials I need for various projects turned out to be cheaper than trying to buy them (carbon nanotubes cost 1200 for a 4cm x 4cm forest). I've been building all day and have finished the day with a functional vacuum chamber that can be switched out easily for various purposes and allow for all kind of coatings. I'm waiting on a few parts to show up to really crank it up to 11 but now I can properly start researching these materials and the benefit of it will hopefully extend to all of you. I'll be able to make high quality mirrors for lasers and various projects, hopefully the nanotubes I desperately need and i'm working on boron doped diamond for use in neural implants. I'll post some pictures and videos of ym setup later but my hands are cut, soar and bloody and frankly I can't be bothered right now. This is still just the first day but if this continues to work this well and at this pace it'll be an exciting next few months.
