Hi Blake,

I took 4 MOT's, cut off the I piece and removed the heater winding, shunts,
and primary winding.  I put two pieces of polypropylene sheet over the top
of each MOT and then clamped the I part of the core back on with long bolts
and metal angle brackets.  All four secondary inductors were then rested on
a piece of acrylic sheet,and connected in series.  This gave me 34.6 Henries
that would hopefully not saturate due to the air gap in the core, and also
handle the 10kV or so that would be developed across it.  It took a bit of
time to sort out but did not cost very much at all.
