[TCML] First Light, MOTs, etc.
I'm finally coiling again. Nothing spectacular. Just a generic spark gap coil. Still, it gives me something to tinker with until I can get my pole pig system put back together. I'm running a kilowatt of NSTs at the moment, but I eventually plan to step up to twin-MOT power.
BTW, I finally inventoried my MOT stash, and I came up with 39 serviceable units. I measured the core dimensions, sorted them by orientation (vertical or horizontal) and also measured primary and secondary resistance and inductance as an aid to electrically matching them up. I came up with two pairs of twins, as well as a group of six that seem to be just alike. Now I just need to figure out how to use all that power. I don't need no stinking IGBTs--I've got 200 pounds of MOTs!
