Re: transformers

Original poster: "by way of Terry Fritz <twftesla-at-uswest-dot-net>" <PHAV8R-at-aol-dot-com>

it appears that i have one of these neon bombarder transformers.  it is the 
open frame construction that you described and has old fabric covered 
windings and a wooden open frame.  the laminations are interleaved at the 
corners and form a square unit.  definitely not current limited, it drew 90 
amps -at- 120v on the first hookup until i conected a large 50 variac.
  anybody have any experience with these monsters with coil use?  the size is 
approx 14" x 14" x 8" and VERY heavy.  how can i test it to determine output 
voltage / current?
