Re: High Voltage Transformer

Original poster: NuclearFirestorm@xxxxxxx

My name is  Matthew E. Massey, sorry I didn't include that first go round.

It's funny you should suggest the 14.4
kv 1.5 kVA transformer. I believe I may have just found a used one with exactly those specs at a buisness across town.
Thanks much.
