Sounds like something from "This is Spinal Tap".  :)

Well, that certainly makes *me* feel better! I've  been trying to duplicate 
your results, and with just one unmodified 15/60  Franceformer I got a lot of 
heartburn running a .04uF cap on a 120BPS SRSG. I  always had to add a 15/30 to 
get it to halfway work!
    You mention on your Website that you bought  your NST used, and had to 
re-pot it. You also mention that the shunts  were impossible to remove (I know 
what you mean, I've got a bad 15/30  Jefferson with a one-piece core).  But you 
*don't* mention on  your Website what brand of 15/60 NST you've got! What is 
this wondrous  thing?

How much of that is reactive current?
