Re: [TCML] laminations

Thank you everyone for your input on laminations. From a transformer
standpoint, it was just a matter of curiosity for me, but from a practical
standpoint, I am more curious about its applications in ballasting. For the
moment I've been experimenting with ballasting mots with mots, but down the
road I hope to get a pole pig eventually. But before I do, I want to have
the necessary parts in place to be able to control the pig. Getting back to
mot's, though, what kind of amperage can one expect to be able to push
through a mot, safely, before things go up in smoke?
You might try limiting to not over 2X oven rating. 800 W= 1600/120 <13 A,
1 KW = 2000/120 < 16 A, 2 KW = 4000/120 < 32 A etc.
Oil immersion allows more.
(Many folks go with 80-90% of what burned up their last one) ;^)))
I think before I go too much bigger I'll have to run a new line to my
Right now it's fed through a 15 amp breaker, though I can push it for a
couple/few seconds at 20ish amps before tripping.
Thanks again for your help and info,
