New inner grid

I have designed a new inner grid for my Fusor. For those who don't know the inner grid is a wire grid that is charged to a very high negative voltage. I have made the new grid from 1.5mm mild steel instead of 0.1mm tungsten. The tungsten was very hard to shape to the right shape for the grid as it had a tendency to snap and was very brittle.
