Hi to All, I have to say that these testimonies are extremely sobering to
those of us new to
"TCing". I am in the process of building a 15/60 Coil and I just finished
phasing my 2 -15/30
NST's. The arcs produced by the wire used for phasing was very alluring but
I had to purposely
remind myself that though alluring , they were also deadly. I am in a very
hazardous job and
safety is paramount all the time so safety in "TCing" is almost natural.
testimonies during discuusions should be forthcoming. If one life is saved,
we have done our
job. Thanks to all who have helped me in my construction and as soon as
the arcs flow, so will
the pictures. Later, Tim Walrath
