    "it produced excess heat for about 20 minutes bringing the material from room temperature up to 130 degrees without any power input from the outside."

    I certainly hope that many of us can replicate this experiment. Anyone who…

    I am not the least bit skilled in the art! You sound like you know way more about vacuum pumps than I do. Maybe more than Mizuno. I expect you would be a big help in that.

    The only technical help I have contributed to Mizuno and…

    The problem in this case is that no one actually knows whether the directions are complete, or whether they work. This is more art than science. This has never been done before, except by one person in one lab. No one has…

    What you say sounds quite logical. But take the example of a replicator whose setup involves no calorimeter. It may seem like a proper replication but the calorimeter changes the heat flow and potentially the outcome of the…

    I think everyone agrees, an effective theory of how to create the NAE would be very important. But, as many have noted, everyone including their parrot have a theory. How is anyone to choose the one that is correct and useful? I have set about to…

    Nice find Jeff . It look similar to the MKS e-Vision2 and about $1k cheaper.

    Very interesting thoughts!
    Sometimes "one cannot see the forest for the trees".

    If a complete procedure log was built for all tested reactors, one might be able to start developing theories to better direct future testing and…

    That is why anyone expecting to perform this experiment in one week is operating in the wrong time frame. Plan to purge many times and

    I've just been reading about a failure to reproduce a series of positive experiments due to running out of Pd. New Pd was bought from the same supplier, JM, and the same experiment ceased to produce excess heat. This prompted analysis of the Pd wire. It…

    I think you would need more heating applied to the outside of the reactor- 200C from an inside heater fot 17 hours is not really high enough or long enough, especially with no RGA to check purity. Heating tape on the outside and…

    Mesh is graded by the size of the items that pass through it, not by the number of wires per inch.
    Market grade mesh of 180 has holes to pass items 0,0033" and
    Market grade mesh of 200 has holes to pass items 0.0029"
    There are…

    That is a long list of differences. I would not call that a good first attempt. I would say it is a rather different experiment. Introducing things like solder might cause big problems. Did the mass spectrometer confirm there is…

    I agree with the "see what happens over longer timescales" and also different replications.

    I'd only point out the possibility that Mizuno's results were in fact a mistake, which stays on the table, and will become stronger if…

    This is the reason that I am automating the process. TM seems to be a very patient man and he summarizes the long process that he actually went through to gain success.

    There seem to be dozens of teams or individuals preparing replication. If replication turns out to be easy, one of them will be reporting success. If, on the other hand, it turns out to be very sensitive to parameters such as the brand of Palladium…

    Here is an idea for a heater for the Mizuno replications.

    First, there are several reasons to think that the heater function is not just to heat the Nickel mesh.

    1. If heat was the only thing required, once excess heat starts, the mesh would be…

    I'm a bit sorry to complicate this seemingly endless argument, but some assumptions made in this discussion need questioning:

    I meant that: Without quantitative numbers on the amount of heat, some will dismiss the claim of 1-3kW. I do not dismiss his claims for lack of specifics. I know you do not either.

    Do you know when he sent out the 12 reactors?…
