I'm going to have to defer the non-youtube video upload question to our resident site gurus ginny and jack.

5 uF or 5000 uF sounds much better!

5 F would not be out of the question at low voltages, of course. But we are talking 35V in this case. 5mF / 5000 uF.

So you're suggesting that if I were to upload a video to You Tube I could then just give the link here?

I have an account on Flickr, and I think I could do it there also (the people who follow my photography would just figure I'd finally flipped out :)

I'll check out the You Tube option as I am on that but have never posted a video.

The only video uploading I've done has been with youtube vids. After you create one or pull one up on your youtube account, click the share tab just below it and copy the highlighted URL. Then, paste the URL into your HRO post, highlight it and then click the youtube icon in the toolbar just below the text box your writing in and when you hit the "post reply" button it should show up as a viewable youtube image within the post.

Thanks, Allen! I will follow your advice because that was one piece I was missing in the message of how it should look. I'll try go get this going in the next few days since I just got the new AT150A transformer and am trying to figure out how to fit it in the case. I think I have it figured out, thank God, because for a while I was afraid I might have to build it all over again in a larger case. But my guardian angel has saved me, I think. We'll see. Pictures and video to follow.

This is how it looks with the Honeywell AT150A transformer installed. You can see that when oriented as shown, it fits within the space at the top. However, it was necessary to cut off the two metal case tabs at the top.

Per Allen's suggestion, I will look into making a You Tube video that covers this in detail and shows the degree of fluidization in the chamber at both 91 gm and 113.5 gm, 1/5 and 1/4 lb quantities, respectively. Having no prior experience with video photography, this may take a while, but I will do it at some point.

In the mean time, I'll post any further observations here.

Transformer is getting bigger John.

If you post a Youtube video use the Video tag. Insert the full Youtube link between the video /video.

An example:
