Only makes for more questions.  Sachelle, from what I read from you on 12-6, 
I would present you must be a really fast learner.  I'm not criticizing you, 
your qualifications,or your actions, I'm asking you to support your claims 
and express your targets wrt accepted IC theory.  That would only be 
difficult if you are winging this project.

Ok, not my experience.  Why don't the boys at spearco even offer copper or 
silver to the "unlimited funded" race boys?  Food for thought?

OK, so aluminum is harder to work with, easy burn thru and has thin walls, 
and requires welding (expensive equipment) not braizing.  And is the most 
used material for IC manufacture.  I think you are missing something.

OK, how much is the core material?

I'm into the projects too.  However, my mental stimulation comes from 
researching existing hardware > then going after improvements (if there are 
any).  Having btdt on IC's some time ago, with a lot more than 4 days into 
it, I'm just not into this particular project as a qlist exercise, so 
expressed.  Do knock yourself silly.  I'm happy to wait for the IC results, 
they can be predicted then evaluated, if you do your homework correctly.  You 
have only shown you can work with copper to make an IC device.  'Better' as 
you defined it, has a weak document trail attached to it.  I'm still asking 
the really basic question, why more IF/EF flow?  What results are you looking 
for?  Why?

To what?  I asked some relatively simple questions on what, how and why you 
are doing what you are (that some might consider to be hints, not slams, and 
is my mental stimulation).  All of a sudden I'm the bad guy, and *I* "grossly 
misunderstand" about IC's.  A bit premature statement looking at your 12-6 

Again best of luck to you, Sachelle.  I looked for depth from a guy that is 
working hard on a project that "appears" to have great list interest, from 
one that claims to have answers, that's all.  When you are done, please post 
your results, thermocouples don't lie.

Thanks for your posts.  EOD.
