Re: Isolation transformer - MOT?

But, to answer Matthew's original question, sure.. remove the primary from
one transformer and use it to replace the secondary on another and you'll
have a dandy isolation transformer.  I wouldn't count on it for 10's of kV,
but it probably is good to 3000-5000V (sort of general HiPot test voltage
for consumer stuff)...  Advantages would include less core and copper loss
(over the two transformer back to back approach), lower mass, and smaller
