	Unfortunately, that last sentence is a vast understatement.  Scientific
American has eliminated the Amateur Scientist and Mathematical
Recreations departments and has been dumbed down to about the technical
level of the National Enquirer!!!!!

	Plans for that little X-Ray machine are available over the web. 
Probably find it through the Society of Amateur Scientists web site.  
It used a classic "kicker coil" and some old receiving tubes which are
not regularly available any more.
