when you were setting up your piggie coil, did you by chance take a look
inside the pig and notice the size of the wires leading to the "output"
insulators? Its been a few years since I have opened mine up and I was
trying to remember about what size the wires were... for some reason I
want to think they were about a #6 in dia.
Dr. Res... you deal alot with piggies... maybe you can recall the size
seen in most 10KVA units...
