My laminations were riveted, but I removed the rivets which was not  easy.
I did this because otherwise I was not able to disassemble the core, for  
reason.  But anyhow I was suggesting that since you  disassembled your
core, and even though it went back together tightly, maybe there's  some
sort of change in performance as a result of the re-assembly.  I  don't know. 
I'm thinking this may explain the super-power of your NST.  And  my
15/60 also drew 25 amps after re-assembly, but I'm not sure what it
drew before repotting.  However my 12/30 didn't seem to change  much
as a result of re-potting.
