Re: If you had this supply and switch, what would you build?

Hi Dave,

In the back of the RCA Transmitting Tube Manual TT-5, (reprints available from Antique Radio Supply, Tempe, AZ), there is a schematic for an induction heater using an 833-A with an output frequency of 450 KHz, so they can be in the right frequency range. Your results may vary.

I've often wondered what would happen if you just connected an
appropriately sized primary to the unmodified output of the induction
heater, and then added a Tesla secondary. Wouldn't you have pretty much a
complete VTTC? It seems like that's all you'd need, or am I missing
something? Big induction heaters come up frequently on eBay, and can be
had for little more that shipping costs. Would the typical output
frequency of an induction heater be too low for decent TC performance?
