I gather the way the transformer is wound is a safety issue, right? And if
I understand correctly, the safer the transformer, the more expensive it
is, right? I have corresponded with someone on this list who set up a
DIYUGH a couple of years ago with what I think he called a "switching"
tranformer. Is this unsafe. I guess what I'm saying is that I am woefully
ignorant when it comes to transformers and I'm wondering what's at stake.
What a cool list, eh? One minute botany, the next chemistry, the next
electronics, the next fish. . . .
