I received mine yesterday.  Checked it over and ran some tests.  At 110V in 
I was getting 285V out with no load.  Nice smooth operation and the thing 
is built like a tank.  Thanks for extending the offer and making things so 

Is Kevin on this list?  If so:

Kevin, would you be willing to share your transformer design with us (me) 
as I am in California and having trouble finding pigs without $300 shipping 
on top of the price.

Another question:

Has anyone built any of their secondary structures with wood.  I am 
designing a large coil and would like to make it an open air design (like 
Greg Leyh's monster) but I am having trouble finding good strong materials 
to build the framework.  If anyone has any wisdom in this area it would be 
greatly appreciated.
