The size of the holes in the microwave door are designed to block specific wave lengths as Crash said.
I've posted this pic a couple of times because it does a great job of showing how one works.
You certainly can ground it but remember that current flow is from an area of greater potential to an area of lesser potential.
Show transcribed image text Assume that the Faraday Cup and Grounding Cage act like coaxial conducting cylinders (ignore that there is a bottom to the Faraday Cup, and allow the height of the Grounding Cage to be equal to the height of the Faraday Cup). We’ve established that an EMP incident will fry all electronics.  This occurs whether or not they are plugged in or turned on. In fact, with the knowledge of the protection that a Faraday cage can provide you, you may be able to enjoy nearly as comfortable a lifestyle as you did prior to any electromagnetic pulse. Whether or not your electronics are plugged in, how long of an antenna you’ve got on something, what voltage it is, or whether or not they operate with batteries—all non-protected electronics will be affected by an EMP. Just because your car has rubber tires, it will not be impervious to the effects of an EMP.  Rubber containers are insufficient protection against an EMP. And oh yeah—yes, your Faraday cages DO need to be grounded.  If it’s NOT grounded, then the Faraday cage merely becomes a reflector or an amplifier. Yes, a microwave can act as a Faraday cage, but why in the world would you want to use it for that?  That’s just silly when you can make one simply. Faraday cages do not have to be solid, thus the name “cage” instead of the oft misused term—“box.”  In fact, many of them that you can build yourself or will see on the internet will resemble a bird cage or a very finely meshed chicken coop wire. Also, contrary to what you may see on the internet, a sheet of foil on a box will not protect you. The cages do not have to be solid, but they do have to be constructed continuously without gaps between the protective material.
You can have an instant Faraday cage with a galvanized trash can or a large stock pot like they use in restaurants.
The radiation in a microwave makes a CD-ROM look like a spider-web of char and plastic almost instantly. My "um" was supposed to be with attitude in response to your know-it-all attitude which is propagating misinformation here on a blog I enjoy reading.
There is metal in CDs and DVDs, but they aren't at any more risk of damage from an EMP than the layers in a roll of aluminum foil are at risk of fusing together.
I quickly found one source that states that CDs and DVDs are immune to EMPs through Google.
I'm planning on using my old laptop for storage purposes only, and keeping it in either a Faraday container or a galvanized trash can.
Instead of using "thumb drives loaded with all of [your] vital information" I suggest you use optical storage (DVDs or CDs) They're cheaper and since they have no circuitry will withstand an EMP without any protection.
Unfortunately, I have yet to find a quality "shaker flashlight" that provides suitable light. A good idea of something to keep in a Faraday cage is a shake flashlight that powers itself when you shake it. Faraday cages would also be useful if kept in the trunk of your car with flashlight, radio, replacement car stuff, etc., if an EMP struck while you were traveling and not very close to a city or town. To get a proper Ground the best thing to use is a copper ground wire attached to copper rod 9 feet long pounded into the ground and a 12 inch hole around the ground rod filled with water.
3.Just like you give someone a jump on a battery always make sure one connector is grounded.
4.In Iraq when on the move we always had a wire connected to the ground point and if we could not bury a ground rod we drove over it and then soaked the rod in water. 2.I went back through the US Army's EMP standards and the scariest thing I found is the Army is not sure if what they are doing for EMP will work! If I build a Faraday Cage like the first picture above out of 2x4 frame and a mesh wire fabric, does the bottom have to be mesh too?


If you use mesh, you have to use a very fine mesh so that the holes are not big enough to let in microwave-length radiation. What is most important is that whatever you are trying to protect is COMPLETELY enclosed (top, bottom, and all sides), that it is well-grounded, that whatever you are storing inside is insulated from the exterior mesh, and that there are no wires linking something inside with anything outside. In other words, you could store your generator in a faraday cage, but to use it would require you to open the faraday cage in order to plug it in, etc.
The problem with an EMP is the ions that travel at high-speeds, thus creating great power, which will destroy diode substrate layers, thus causing electronics to stop functioning.
So, the fact that you can or can not stop radio waves from getting in is not an indicator of whether or not it will work as a Faraday cage.
If you think you may need a Faraday cage and you don’t want to spend too much time or money and you want it to look nice in your den or home office then this is the project for you.
This file cabinet has L shaped cut outs and a section of metal bent outward to act as stops to keep the drawer from being pulled out all the way. The cables that connect the drawers to the inside of the back of the file cabinet need to be long enough to allow the drawer to be opened up all the way. I cut the sheet to size and removed the sharp edges.  I drilled through hole for sheet metal screws.
Next I taped the plate to the bottom of the cabinet and used the same drill bit I used to drill the though hole to make divots for the smaller through holes for the sheet metal screws to cut threads in to.  Next I attached the plate to the cabinet with sheet metal screws and added some pieces of gasket material (industrial waste from my day time job) to act as feet (optional).
When you are done, use an ohm meter to make sure both drawers are electrically conductive with the cable connected to the outside of the file cabinet. I can still use my Faraday cage as a file cabinet with files in the front and stash my electronic gadgets, radios and spare parts in the back of the drawers.

Hey Lux, during (or after) posting this were you able to find any results posted from EMI shield testing a filing cabinet by any chance? You are currently viewing our boards as a guest which gives you limited access to view most discussions and access our other features.
You are preventing the discharge from traveling through whatever you are trying to protect which any metallic box will do. Just line a whole room or the garage with aluminim foil and everything in it, including the car, will be protected? The inside cylinder is isolated from the outside cylinder with the outside cylinder attached to ground. Kellene, I was responding to the part where Alt says "since they have no circuitry will withstand an EMP without any protection". Alt, you could have a hand in a microwave for 2 seconds and not have any noticable effects. By the way, something that I haven't discussed as of yet is that there's actually 3 levels of EMP strike that we can expect.
Yes, as long as whatever is being protected is completely surrounded with good, conductive metal that is then grounded properly. The reason I am asking is that I am looking to buy and old truck (late '60's to mid '70's) specifly for the reason that it would function in the event of an EMP attack or solar flare. If I had a laptop in the garbage can, would it need additional protection, such as wrapped in mesh wire? If you have an old car that doesn't have any electronic ignition or any solid state parts would it still fry? Wrapping the devices in aluminum foil - could not call the phone, keying one radio did not reach the other. You can use your Faraday cage to store some of your electronic devices when they are not in use and protect them against the effects of a solar storm or an electromagnetic pulse from an exoatmospheric nuclear detonation.
The size does not matter as long as the screws, nuts, flat washer and lock washers all fit together.
You may want to make them long enough to attach both ends of the cable while the drawer is outside the cabinet.

Mesh wire will generally not work unless it is very small mesh (chicken coop wire wouldn't work). I would guess that if it doesn't have a an electronic ignition it would start assuming that it is all original factory parts under the hood. And should that wire be grounded to the garbage can (which is connected to an outside ground rod)?
If you put a cage in your basement, would you have to run a wire to the outside to ground it? So yes, if it's an EMP that has caused your power outage, then you should be fine after its impact. Not sure if it will work but I think it will be the best I will be able to do without a full retro fit of my home.
These are to electrically connect each drawer to the back or side of the inside of the file cabinet. All you are trying to do is have a discharge travel over the outside of the Faraday cage instead of inside it. Determine the following, showing all work: Use values measured for charging the Faraday Cup with the PVC disk.
First of all, allow me to dispel some myths about Faraday cages—and boy, howdy, there are a LOT of them. It’s the substrate layers of the diodes and transistors that make them susceptible to a magnetic pulse attack. Since Faraday cages are not fool proof, depending on the strength of the pulse, I would recommend burying such containers 2 feet under the ground, storing survival electrical and battery items. This needs to be done because the plastic slides that the drawers slide on are not conductive.
If you have any problems with the registration process or your account login, please post in the first "Registration Help" subforum. Think of folks inside an airplane when it is hit by lightening and you have a Faraday cage. You are simply left with the sudden consequences and whatever preparedness you have on hand.  So, other than your preparedness supplies, your new best friend may be a Faraday cage. If the file cabinet you use has metal bearings, you will still want to attach the drawers to the inside of the file cabinet to insure a good electrical connection. The other cable attaches to the outside of the file cabinet to connect the file cabinet to a metal grounding rod that has been pounded into the ground. The solid line represents the Faraday Cup, while the dashed line represents the Grounding Cage. You can make your “cage” as small or as large as you’d like.  It wouldn’t be out of the question to continuously line a basement storage room or hole in the ground with copper mesh wire and a grounding rod. Bottom line, with an appropriately constructed Faraday cage, you can likely protect that which is inside from the electromagnetic attack of an EMP incident or solar flare, thus preserving the function of all that is contained therein. They are then put in the microwave.  The one Peep that wasn’t put in the microwave met his untimely death, while the others were still intact.
For a little bit of a science lesson on the workings of a Faraday cage, check out this YouTube link.
The science professor is EXCELLENT.  Note though that he does say that a car is a Faraday cage, however, I want to reiterate that it is NOT sufficient to extinguish the effects of an EMP attack. Chicken coop wire would work, but only if you double or even triple layered it as the opening are too large.
