   - Set the Glassman **target** power supply to 6.5 kV. Check to be sure the current is less than about 5 milliamps and the "​control milliamperes"​ light is NOT lit. High current indicates that the source needs to be serviced. ​ A newly installed pellet may cause instability for the first hour or so, but will become stable.   - Set the Glassman **target** power supply to 6.5 kV.

-  - **Tune the beam with the inflection magnet, source lens (usually about 1.5 kV), einzel lens A, and 2Y steerer.** ​ The 2X steerer should be neutral (5.00 on dial) as X steering is be done by the inflection magnet at this stage.+  - **Tune the beam with the inflection magnet, source lens (usually about 1.5 kV), einzel lens A, and 2Y steerer.** ​ The 2X steerer should be neutral (5.00 on dial) as X steering is be done by the inflection magnet at this stage.  Make sure the inflection magnet deflection is set to "​Right"​.
   - Monitor the target and extractor currents: target current should be around 2.5 milliamps, and no more than 5 mA.  If target current gets too high, reduce the cesium reservoir setting.   - Monitor the target and extractor currents: target current should be around 2.5 milliamps, and no more than 5 mA.  If target current gets too high, reduce the cesium reservoir setting.

   - **Cesium reservoir**:​ The reservoir has a temperature controller that turns the power on/off as needed for a constant temperature. ​ The controller is located next to the analog temperature meter on the source power platform. ​ The red numbers are the measured temperature,​ the green numbers are the set point temperature,​ there is a small red light that indicates when the controller is calling for power. ​ The reservoir current switches between 0.150A and .315A as directed by the controller.   - **Cesium reservoir**:​ The reservoir has a temperature controller that turns the power on/off as needed for a constant temperature. ​ The controller is located next to the analog temperature meter on the source power platform. ​ The red numbers are the measured temperature,​ the green numbers are the set point temperature,​ there is a small red light that indicates when the controller is calling for power. ​ The reservoir current switches between 0.150A and .315A as directed by the controller.

   - Wait for the reservoir temperature (red numbers on controller) to drop below** 85**° C.  ​   - Wait for the reservoir temperature (red numbers on controller) to drop below** 85**° C.  ​
   - Turn down the feed tube power supply.   - Turn down the feed tube power supply.
