Why don't people modify MOT's for high voltage? Answered

Why don't people modify MOT's for high voltage? I just did I left about 3 layers of primary windings, removed the middle coil and the shunts put it back together then submerged it in oil, I also removes a couple of layers of the secondary windings to get rid of the resin so the oil can get in. It worked amazingly I don't understand why people don't do it.

People do do it. The problem is they aren't current limited in any way, and since there's no feedback, they can be dangerous. They work in a pinch, are cheap, etc, but they are also a lot more 'wild'.

Nice hack.
The middle coil wouldn't make any difference.

What are the shunts you refer to ?
