That is an old obsolete design but it will work. I have since found that
it was overkill.
I now recommend the filter at:
Some people have another set of safety gaps instead of the MOVs. I like
MOVs at the NST because you don't have to set them and nothing can go
wrong. However, they will not discharge the primary caps (more than once
;-)) so I still use safety gaps at the primary side.
