RE: [TCML] Calculating transformer output at lower voltages

```Surely this supposes the wire gauges are the same, which they aren't

Since I also have no high voltage meter,  I figured out an easy way to use
my multi-meter in the ohms, then volts AC scales....

TRx = Rs/Rp

We can then use the tested ohms ratio (TRx:1) to calculate the voltage
coming out of the secondary, when a specified test voltage is applied.

Hypothetical value example...
Secondary measures 1250 ohms
Primary measures 10 ohms.

Ratio (as per above math): 125:1  (125 is now our multiplier)

120v in X 125 = 15,000v out (normal NST)
4v in X 125 = 500v out (within the range of most multi-meters)

I even threw together a small Windows application to do the math for you.
