Re: NST -- output terminals

Original poster: "Shaun Epp by way of Terry Fritz <twftesla-at-qwest-dot-net>" <scepp-at-mts-dot-net>

Having just taken the core out of a Jefferson MagneTeK 15/60   I'll add to
the last post.

The output insulators seem to be a 1/4 turn thread in and the tar and a
rubber like bushing holds it from turning loose.   I will take an even
closer look thursday evening to verify all this.   Also after the heavily
insulated wire( ~~ about 2 1/4 ")  that comes right out of the insulator  it
is soldered/connected to the thin magnetic wire and there is also a thin
metal ancor ( ~ 1/2 " square that is split punched ??) and the wire is
connected to that, then to the secondary windings of the NST.

BTW...  the BBQ set on low to med. heat melts it good.

I hope this Helps
