I have tried various ways to rebuild the block, but this reflector is so efficient that there is no spark to work with. But I did find a stable 2g to H converter using this same initial pattern. A 2 glider salvo is converted to a Herschel and the block is replaced by the Herschel reaction, ready to go again. This could be useful when constructing in tight spaces. I did have trouble getting the herschel to enter into a herschel conduit because the still life in the conduit gets in the way of the next incoming salvo.

When I compare the reflector with the ones in the Golly blockic reflectors it rates a quick -4 generations in making the turn and belongs in the left column.

I want to post this so maybe someone can do more with it. I have not used Herschel conduits much.

The 2g to H reaction below is a recent attempt to let the herschel escape:
