Cloudbusting made easy


   Such a simple, elegant device.  The only reason I left the bucket on the base was for portability; otherwise, it could blend into almost any garden decor.

List of materials:

Four 10' lengths of 3/4" copper tube.

Six 3/4" end caps.

Six 3/4" pipe connectors with stops.

About a foot of garden hose.

3/4" outdoor plywood.

Six double pointed quartz crystals

Two 2 gallon paint buckets.

Case of empty beer cans.

Nine copper scrubbing pads. More is always better.

Two gallons of fiberglass resin and hardener.


Set a crystal in a small piece of garden hose and glue it to the inside of the copper end cap.  Plumbing Goop works pretty well for this.

Take a 10' copper pipe and, using your pipe cutter, cut six 1'-long pieces.  Fit the crystal containing end cap on the end of each foot-long tube and seal the cap with Goop. 

You'll need 2 plywood spacersn -- one for the bottom and one to hold the top of the foot long tubes.  I just used the bottom of  the bucket and traced a circle, then made it 1/4" smaller.  Mark your holes an equal distance from each other and to the center hole.  Drop it in the bucket and see if it fits.  Smaller is OK, but you don't want it too tight.  Again, I just played with the compass until I got it right.  (This ain't rocket surgery, ya know.)  Use a 15/16" drill bit for these holes.

The top spacer is made the same way.  Use a 7/8" drill bit for this.

Your bottom tube assembly should look like this.  All the pipes should fit snug.  In hindsight, I should have cut away more material on the bottom spacer to allow the resin to flow around it more.  

I chose beer cans for the aluminum because at this place, it's a renewable resource.  I'm not a beer drinker, but almost everyone who comes here is.  I decided on Schaefer cans, because Budweiser stinks when you cut them up.  (that's my opinion and I'll stick with it -- but any aluminum can will do.)  Use a good pair of scissors and cut the tops and bottoms off.  Then cut the sheets into little pieces like the ones pictured.  Believe me, I found this to be the biggest pain in the ass with this project.  I strongly suggest finding someone else to do this chore, or borrow your neighbor's paper shears.  You'll thank me later.

Anyway, pour about 2" of fiberglass resin in the bottom of the bucket and add the proper amount of catalyst.  Dump in a bunch of cut-up aluminum and stir.  You want enough aluminum to make it thick.  Add your cut-up copper scrubbing pads to cover.

About measuring.... Some people feel as though they need to be anal about measuring things, as if they were cooking for the queen.  I refuse to put any resin in my measuring cups, because I like my measuring cups.  The way I do it is this ... There are 2 catalyst tubes for each gallon.  That means 1 tube is good for 1/2 gallon.  You can break it down from there.  Just look inside the can, OK?  

I got my copper scrubbing pads at Wallyworld.  Not my first choice as far as stores go, but they had these 3-packs cheaper than Choreboy.  I cut up about one 3-pack for this step.

When the resin was just starting to jell, I put in my tube assembly.  The tape is to prevent any metal from accidentally getting in the tubes, and the cut-outs make it easier to pour the resin.  Fill the bucket with cut-up copper scrubbies and more aluminum.  Lots of aluminum.  You're using at least a case of cans, remember? 

Using the other bucket, mix up about a half gallon or so of the resin.  Carefully pour in the catalyzed resin and use your stick to mix in the copper.  Looks like it disappeared, doesn't it?  Go see if your girlfriend has those cut-up cans ready, 'cause you're gonna need 'em.

Fill the rest of the bucket with aluminum and cut-up copper, and add more catalyzed resin.  You're almost done now.

This resin gets hot when it cures.  Don't be surprised to see little volcanoes as it's curing.

When the resin is cool, remove the top spacer and tape.  Get your pipe connectors and put one on top of each pipe.  

Take your pipe cutter and cut the three remaining 10' copper pipes in half, making six 5' tubes, and fit a tube into each connector.  Use your top spacer and fit it on the tops of the tubes to stabilize it.  Twist it a little to make it fit.  It'll be a snug fit, and it'll keep your pipes straight and parallel.


What you now have is a rather effective cloudbuster without the need for an accumulator.  When Wilhelm Reich was experimenting with his cloudbusters, he had them attached to deep ground water and to a multi-ply orgone accumulator to absorb DORs (deadly orgone radiation).  The problem was his accumulator would get overloaded with DORs, making it reasonably dangerous to use over a long period of time.  This device bypasses the need for an external accumulator by neutralizing the DORs in the base, and with the removable pipes, makes it possible to transport easily.


All these parts can easily be had, no matter where you live.  I found the best deal for copper pipes at Home Depot.  All your copper is right there in the same aisle.  You can find the fiberglass resin, as well as the buckets, in the paint department.  I found Elmer's to be easier to work with, because it was more liquid than other brands, and had a wider mouth for pouring.  Garden hose, plywood, stir sticks, and other odds and ends-type parts are where you find 'em, like your basement or garage.

I found some pretty good deals for crystals here.

About the metals ...

This is a pretty open subject.  If you have access to a machine shop that works with aluminum, all the better.  They always have scraps and shavings they're willing to part with.  I chose beer cans because they were handy, and I didn't feel like doing any more running around.  If you don't have access to a plentiful supply of empty cans, you can use aluminum roasting pans, pie pans or any of that stuff in the baking section of your local supermarket.  Just cut them up in small pieces.  I found the best source for copper was Choreboys copper scrubbing pads.  You can find them in most supermarkets.  Some places like Wallyworld have a knock-off brand that has more scrubbies for less.  Just be sure you get copper, not stainless.  Remember, this mix is mostly metal.  The resin just holds it all together.  You're essentially making an aluminum/copper block with some copper pipes imbedded in them, with a crystal at the bottom of each pipe.  More crystals will make it more powerful, and longer tube extensions will extend its range.


Good luck,
