went to the Ebay listing you supplied and saw 3 things that will be
"unsatisfying" if you purchased the units pictured.
1. They are 50KVA = Huge, very heavy, very hard to move around in
2. The voltage stated it was 7200 V. Rather on the low side for Tesla
coiling ( really should be in the 14,000 range)
Kinda like putting a lawn mower motor in an 18 wheeler truck.
3. I saw only 1 insulator on top, this requires you to do some
different wiring ( not like an NST with 2 insulators) to get things to work.
oh yea... there is a number 4
4. Current limiting a piggie that size would be a challenge...

My question is what are your thoughts on the price? also I have found they are not so easy to get in Florida and if it's not local shipping can be more than the unit itself. This one I don't have to build a container for and locate oil and the like.
