Hook it up, to do What ??
These are not regular transformers, they are used as resonating magnetron

This can kill you, so literally keep one hand in your pocket
when its plugged into a live socket. 
That way you can only burn off some fingers. . . .  .  . . .  A

I was thinking more on the high voltage arc side, or maybe charging a cap bank with iy
Then get some flint!
If you don't know I wouldn't recommend you play with it.
