Isolation transformer - MOT?

Original poster: "Matthew Smith by way of Terry Fritz <twftesla-at-qwest-dot-net>" <matt-at-kbc-dot-net.au>

Hi All

The joys of living in a small country town!  Only two shops sell 
microwave ovens and only one does their own repairs.  The result is a 
stream of similar ovens (Panasonic) with *identical* transformers, caps, 
diodes, etc.  (Collect enough and you can make a working one.)

Not the real reason for my post though...

If I have two identical transformers, what is the feasability of 
removing the secondary from one and replacing with the primary from the 
other?  Would this give me a decent 1kVA isolation transformer?

I rather like the idea of running my bench supply through one with a 
heck of a lot of filtering - stop SSTC signals showing up where they're 
not wanted.
