Default transformers

Is there any good use that can come from a microwave tranformer. The things are huge. I don't know what the ratings are, though.

Joe:

Do you know what the voltages are? I suppose that they are high and deliver larger currents.

Thanks,

Vic

Here is a thread on this topic and the (obvious) hazards of
such high voltages.
