MOT testing

Hi all,
Can a MOT be tested for current the same way an NST is tested?
I've tested my NSTs (15/60s and 15/30s) by connecting a 1000 ohm 100watt
resistor to one secondary then ramping up the primary voltage with a variac
while monitoring the voltage drop across the resistor. In this case 1 volt
equals 1 ma.
Maybe put two 1000ohm 100watt resistors in parallel to handle the wattage? 1
volt should equal 2 ma.
