Won't work, the large MOT will saturate its core. It's generally impossible to daisy-chain transformers like this unless they were designed with the purpose in mind.
It isn't an insulation problem, it just won't work due to the physics and electromagnetics.

This question has probably been asked before, I want to connect the high voltage output of a small like 600 watt MOT I have to the 120 side of a really large MOT like 1000w to get about 20-30KV out, I'll vacuum pot the MOTs in oil and cut the center ground on the large MOT to prevent arcing, does anyone see a problem with this? Will I have to use some sort of current limiting even tho I'm using a little 600 watt MOT for the primary transformer?
