I got hold of a 12kv 60ma NST from a local sign company. It's pretty old
and the potting is a bit cracked, as you can see:
It passes the "arc to case" test on both sides without any issues, but I
was wondering if I should repot/remelt this?
I almost cranked up the grill, but then I read how you can overcook the
potting on towards the base if not careful.
I did melt some of the bigger cracks closed with my 'pocket blowtorch'.
