More on X-ray transformer

Original poster: "J. B. Weazle McCreath by way of Terry Fritz <twftesla-at-qwest-dot-net>" <weazle-at-hurontel.on.ca>

Hello Coilers,

I had an opportunity over the weekend to do more experiments
with the X-ray transformer and rectifier.  The unit had been
removed from the case containing the oil which allowed me to
trace out the wiring.

By doing just a small re-configuring of the primary hookup,
I was able to test it on a single phase power source. Only
the two outer sets of windings where used, leaving the one
on the middle leg of the core out of the circuit.

With 2.5 Volts applied to the outer two primary windings,
I measured 500 Volts D.C. at the output connector, which
is about right, based on the transformer ratios I worked
out before the test.

When I get the case and oil home later this week, I'll put
the "works" back in place and then try it with my variac,
ramping the input voltage up, while watching the current
draw and the D.C. output.
