RE: [TCML] NST shunt removal

Correct - in order to remove shunts, one needs to completely disassemble everything.  Unpotting and disassembling a fully functional NST is generally not recommended, since it carries a significant risk of damage.  In my case, I did it because the NST was otherwise dead and had nothing to loose.  And after getting it open and cleaned up, I found that the core construction was such that the shunts were integral to the core and could not be removed.  Imagine my disappointment had it all been for nothing!

Subject: [TCML] NST shunt removal

Hi Bart, et.al,
So, from this, it seems that a full disassembly of the
transformer ( coils from core ) must be performed to
gain access to the shunt pieces ?
I was hoping they would be more easily removed.
I hate to potentially damage a fully functional NST.
