Hi John,

I thought about the UV aspect for flourescence just after posting. Sorry about getting the specs messed up, it's been awhile. A SS version sounds cool.

Hi David,

   I'm the guy with the "soil cooker" as you called it ( I call it "The
Earthmelter"!). Its maximum voltage is actually about 2000V, but voltage
under load is generally between 400 and 1000V, at a current of 5-10A. My
next project will be a larger version ( 240V 150A 3-phase), and I have been
greatly inspired by all the recent work on SSTC's that I have read on this
   As to the original post, I gather that it referred to using the UV light
to examine minerals, some of which fluoresce under UV.
