This is my attempt of coming up with a way to control the amount of amps going into my pole pig, using two microwave oven transformers wired  to draw 7-14 amps,  the  MOT transformers were modified by cutting part of the core so it can move and vari the inductance.

I did some tests and it does work for limiting the power, but will draw a minimum of 3 amps per transformer
where the hell did you manage to get a pole pig, amazing1 wont sell to anyone without certification...please tell!<br>
Cool and simple! &nbsp;&nbsp; <br /> <br /> So does it work? &nbsp;And if so, how well?&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <br /> <br /> Did you actually have to cut the core?&nbsp; Or was that an existing interface between the E and I shaped portions?&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <br /> <br />
I had to cut the core.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> I was controling 240V with two of them (2 phase) 120 volts per phase.
