Jim, He's got an oil burner xmfr! Those run 10.5 KV normally.I think I know the book. It may be a equidrive type primary system listed. Those MUST be discharged before handling!!!!
I'm not familiar with the design in Trinkaus's book, however, it's likely your NST will work.Here's the crucial question: is it a old style "magnetic" transformer, as opposed to a new electronic one?If it weighs many pounds, it's likely the old style, which is what you want. If it's "electronic" it won't work in tesla coil applications.10,500 is sort of an unusual voltage, which is why I ask. Typical voltages are 9,000, 12,000, and 15,000. They're all evenly divisible by 120 (75,100,125, respectively).What is the current rating of your transformer? A very common value is 30mA, with 60mA being fairly unusual (and big and bulky)._______________________________________________ Tesla mailing list Tesla@xxxxxxxxxxhttp://www.pupman.com/mailman/listinfo/tesla
