I always belive in having the right tool for the job.
Don't these guys own any guns? they are far more effective at getting the point across then rocks, molotovs and lasers.
Worked for those guys.
Had the same thing happen to me (health canada is the FDA equiv for canada), and 2-3 months later I got the letter and paperwork.
Your options are as follows:
1. Take them to court, pay fees and try to convince you should get your item.
2. Write to the gov and give concent to forfiet & destroy...
Re: Coil/Rail Gun Build
That would be a coilgun, railguns are different on that they accelerate via Lorentz's force between two rails contacting the projectile.
Its a nice little kit, later on you can try out more stages with iron coil houses for even greater velocity. (If I read right yours...
I've been a pretty loyal IE (was running 8) user, and a few days ago a friend of mine talked me into giving firefox a shot.
Holy shit what differance, regret now not having used it before, it literally loads 5X faster, and I like the add-ons like adblock+, noscript, requestpolicy and ghostery...
No, 32KJ (32,000J) would be about 70 of my capacitors together.
Electronics 2000 | Capacitor Charge / Energy Calculator
W = ½ QV = ½ CV2
There is no chance in hell that cap is 4 millifarads (4000uF), so the MFD abbrevaition must be for microfarads. (4uF)
My hobby budget is limited .. and copper isn't cheap lol, so scrap AL works.
the car needed money put into it with repairs and stuff... stupid ringlands.
Once I find the time and spare funds....mucho copper will be needed.
The goal is to provide enough instantanios power to a TI-84 calculator...
Ah, I misread to what you refered to, but since on the topic; 9A peak current doesn't really mean much with its pulse lenth, sure it will work for low gate charge fets, but with the bricks im using its useless. All they are really good for is to drive a highside driver, adding extra parts to the...
Easier? yes. you can slap a UCC pair in there. From my past experience though, Ive grown to hate UCCs and other GD ICs with a great passion. unrelaible, more suseptive to RF interferance, can't push out any decent current (100ma or so for the majority) and expensive, since the bridge devices im...
I forgot the source (will try to find) but it went something like this:
150 foot wide... that might really fuck up your day if it hits a populated city. no worries though, I think you have a better chance of winning the lottery.
~500 feet and you are looking at totaling a full state (pending...
Pulse caps in general are designed to take that kind of abuse, frequently and repeatedly.
Lytics on the other hand... if the ones I got weren't designed for inverter/high current use, they could very well explode.
That would depend on your resistance value.
with a 4KV cap, Id imagine it to be a pulse capacitor and have very low capacitance, so unless connected to its charging source, you won't get very long lasting arcs (before needing to recharge).
Its worthwhile to try though, DC arcs are silent and...
Intended to post this a while back, but didn't get around to it.
Right now its still sitting in my garage (as it was for the past month lol), running off a 120V/600V control tranny and a variac.
Ive designed a battery operated (lead acid) charging system, however haven't had the time to...
