No Flames, except those we want;)

I don't think that you are doing badly with this setup:
90V -at- 17A = 1.5kVA for 66" !!!
I'm only getting 60" with my async-rotary based TC using 220V -at- ~20A
4.4kVA from a westinghouse 10+ LL-65 pig! I could just barely slide
that pig down a ramp from my LandCruiser onto the garage floor without
bursting a favorite body part. At 66", I'll move your H&R 'former any
