Yes and Yes.
A lot of resin NST's can't be used, but I have used that same NST
successfully. The GFI thing on those is external and screws across three of
the terminals on the top, but yours is missing. The lid normally has two
metal links that engage with the springs you can see, the idea being you
pull the lid off and the HV is then off. It's a bit low on output volts as
10Kv would be better (10Kv is the max in Europe I think, while America has
Careful when you wire it up as the HV outputs are at the top part in the

Hello! We are three young students from Sweden about to do a project that
involves the construction of a tesla coil. Since we are all beginners when
it comes to constructing tesla coils we will post a lot of basic questions
which we don't think will be a problem for you guys to answere.
So, here is our first question. Will this neon sign transformer work as a
power supply for a tesla coil?
Second question. Are these high voltage cables suitable for a tesla coil?
