How many kVA (or Amps)? I have one that is 3000V -at- 2kVA--big--over 650mA -at-
over 4000 VDC. You ought to see the magnetron! Also, It had a 70A
filament transformer and a FWB rectifier. The FWB was wired in a way I
have never seen before--two of the four leads were criss-crossed making the
four-terminal device into some kind of 'paralleled' two-terminal device--I
have the schema here somewhere.
Also I found a dual magnetron oven that was essentially two microwave ovens
in one--the only (interesting) difference was that the MOT primaries were
wired out-of-phase. If you know how the standard pseudo-voltage-doubler of
the typical microwave oven works, you can see that this is quite a neat
