"My" entry has just been loaded to:
It has a 1:1 secondary buried in the paraffin wax at the base. It is a 1
million volt TC that used paraffin as an insulator for the giant output
voltage (ha ha, he he, ho ho!). The primary was originally wrapped around

now serves as my favorite door stop and has performed great for the over
years in that duty!
