	These would all be absolutely worthless as cores for chokes
for NST protection (in my opinion, by the way, chokes are more a
liability than an asset in this application).  Core area iw
is way, way too small to support the voltages involved, and
besides I don't know of any way to wind a toroid so that it
will have the several thousand volts insulation which is required.
