Induction Heater Construction & Operation

This is my first attempt at an induction heater. The ultimate purpose will be to make glass capillary tube with an inside diameter of less than 100 microns, about the size of a human hair. This is to test the principle and clearly works as you can see the glass melting. Running only around 500 Watts. Several items were scavenged around the lab such as the oversize metal case and the heat sinks and variac.

The beginning slides show the individual pieces, then a clip of the system, then the power up and last, slides of the schematics.
