Re: 50 hz nst

You shouldn't have to build a frequency adjustment circuit, but it will have
slightly lower (I think) output current running at 60 Hz, since the
reactances (of the current limiting shunts, the core, etc) will be a little
higher.  The reason I say "I think" is cause the higher reactance of the
shunts might limit the current less . . . but it seems like the higher
reactance of the core would overcome that, or at least have a "cancelling"
effect.  Anyway else had some experience with this?

Is this a "traditional" NST, or a solid state?  If it's a solid state, it
isn't that great for TC use, as the output is around 20 to 25 kHz.  Just
checking cause I see a whole bunch of those on eBay advertised for Tesla
coils, when they are practically worthless for a typical spark gap coil,
unless you rectify it and run a DC coil.
