Radiology is one of my hobbies, mainly reptiles and small mammals.It has not cost a great deal of money but a lot of hours of work. My x-ray tube is de-mountable which means it is constantly pumped by a diffusion and rotary combination.It operates either in the conventioal thick target or transmission ( thin target)mode.This allows the generation of X-rays from 3kilovolt to my maximum of 50 Kilovolts.When not in use it is parked on an ion-pump.You need a knowledge of radiation physics, high-vacuum technology,lathe machining,silver-soldering, power supply electronics,glass working,sputtering,vacuum evaporation,photography,patience and an understanding wife.If you have those you should have no problems.
