Hello Adam

This will not work, as the primary is designed to work
at 120V, maybe you can get away with 10 or 20 Volts more,
but that's it. The core of the second  xformer will saturate
very quickly, draw insane currents and do nothing usefull anymore.
I guess if it was all that easy, everyone would to it... ;-)
So your question regarding the current limiting has no meaning anymore,
but however: In your wrong setup, your small "primary" MOT will
limit the desaster somewhat....
Sorry, but it just won't work.
