I got two 15/25's for cheap on Ebay. ACTown, GFI, new in box.
Wouldn't even run a Jacob's ladder until I opened the case and
hard-wired the "test/GFI overide" button. Even then, they won't run
my 4" coil.
Admittedly, I've only tried them with the secondaries
paralleled. I wonder if somehow this may be making things worse. Also
heard a good line filter on the 110 into them can allow them to run a TC.
Potted in soft material that hardens when heated, so without a
road map I'm not keen on de-potting them.
Good enough reason for me to go back to Ebay and get a 15/60 non-GFI.
