Try doing two xmfrs at a time.  If they are not in phase no output results
due to cancellation.  Reverse the primary leads on just one of the xmfrs
and it will now be in phase and work properly.  A typical pole xmfr used
with a current limiting reactor in a Tesla oscillator usually runs at
around 600 ma which would equal 10 NST's in parallel.  Actually the pole
unit will furnish much more peak power than the NST's and usually works
better to recharge the cap faster.  Don't get a pole xmfr unless you have a
very good knowledge of EE principles as it will probably kill you (your
questions indicate that perhaps you are not ready for the pole pig just
yet).  Good luck and unplug everything before making any circuit

I just got my hands on a pair of 15kV/30 mA neons.  If hook them up
parallel, then I will get 60mA... I am almost sure of that.  I remember
reading a message that said that two transformers must be "in phase" before
the current will double.  If they have the same line level input, then
won't this be automatic?  (the two transformers are identical

Is it true that these transformers don't need current limiting, as it is
built in?  What about for Jacobıs ladder?  I want to try out the Jacobıs
ladder for fun, and don't want to ruin my xformers before they get a crack
at Tesla!

And one last thing, out of curiosity....  how many 15kV neons does it take
to get the power of a pole pig?  (and where in the world do you get these
monsters?  ... I hope you don't steal them off the pole in my block, as my
power would go out!!!  and that means no tesla!  heheh)

Thanks for your time!

And this list is always a GREAT read!
