Manufacturing semiconductor components, Mass spectrometers, electron microscopes, etc.

Couldn’t fathom how someone would get use out of it in a processing lab. Just figured someone who likes to tinker could see some utility in it.

I guess in theory you could use it to sublimate THCa and grow defect free seed crystals.
