Re: NST Depotting Experience +

Hi Terry,

I believe that you're correct.  The ground fault circuitry is definitely the
weak link in the new transformer configuration.  I have not yet depotted an
NST but my first one will have ground fault.  I'll let you know how it goes.
It will be a week or two before I have time to mess with it because I am on
a mission to finish my first Tesla coil.

Cordially, Hal in Tucson
