Re: [TCML] X-ray transformer wiring help!

You can still use the x-ray transformer I think but remove or bypass the
rectifier, reduce the input voltage to about 20 volts to get about 18kv
output and add a ballast to limit input current.
I have found that if you can find a neon shop they may let you have nst
transformer or only charge scrape price as neon signs are going away and
being replaced with led's. I have also found that most of the nst's have
the gfi inside the can and are not potted. It is easy to access and bypass
the gfi.
