Re: Unpotted NST

I've already check out this exact idea, contacting both Jefferson and
Franceformer, and for legal reasons, the lawyers will not allow the
sale of any unpotted nsts --- failure to meet UL standards which
could potentially cause a fire. If an employee tries to buy one "on
the side", he is told he will be fired for putting the company at
risk. I know someone "inside" and they just can not and will not do it.
The insurance company pays and then sues the neon xmfr mfgr for the
cost of your house plus "expenses".
I think the single MOT coil Terry developed and the dual MOT coil we
are both developing will be the wave of the future. Low weight and
solid state state switching for sparks up to 7.5 ft on our dual MOT
design. No nsts.
