"        What you described sounds like a high voltage stage out of an old
portable tv. It is probably a step up transformer with a tripler connected
to it. The output of a tripler is dc but the input is ac."
	If it came from Hughes it is almost certainly a CRT HV
supply, very possibly run on 400 cycles.  Beware!
