Re: Fried Primary Transformer??

Original poster: Mddeming@xxxxxxx Yes, this is the correct way to do it. With just the transformer and the gap, open safety gap until just a hair past where it will fire, then open main gap a less and mark this as the ABSOLUTE maximum distance, never to be exceeded. Use stops or lock nuts or whatever.

I am interested in the forms reply to the below question because I test
and set my safety gap and multi-tube gap with just the gaps across the
transformer before the cap and coil is added. Is this right? It does not
seem to pull a heavy load until the MMC cap is added.

Would it have made a difference if I had
just connected the nst directly to the
spark gap w/o the rest of the primary
circuit ?
