The Behemoth

Original poster: "Christopher Boden by way of Terry Fritz <twftesla-at-uswest-dot-net>" <chrisboden-at-hotmail-dot-com>

It's 14.5"L X 18.5"W X 32" tall
Weighs in excess of 200 Lbs
It outputs +75,000 -75,000 V.D.C. (150,000VDC across both terminals) through 
a pair of standard Federal HV connections.
It's oil filled, with an internal rectifier, that MAY be tube (the terminals 
say tube style technology, but looking inside I couldn't see any) or may 
have been retrofitted to solid state.
The oil passes the flame test and isn't PCB, in fact, when bured, smells 
like Lionel smoke (the old ones that came in the little brown ampules).
It's rated for 220VAC in, the man says 700+ma output.
The light tan paintjob suggests a 70's vintage.
and it's sitting on a pallet in my lab.

I've got a collection of them, varying sizes and vintages that I'm using in 
the HVL for things like W I D E jacobs ladders, Marx bank supplies, and 
maybe even Thumper. I may even make a DC coil (the rectifier can easily be 
removed for regular coil use, but you'd either be good with a variac and a 
safety gap or invest in some LOOOOONG strings of Geek Group caps :) ).

Anyone want a pet Boar? (I can't call it a pig)

IT's off to the highest bidder, shipping from my dock in 49007, and the 
pallet is free, I'll strap it to the 2 lifting eyes on top.

All proceeds go to the Group.

Have fun kids.
