since we're on the topic on tranny VA rating, I bought a toroid used as an autotranny (rated as 1kVA but will be 500VA with isolated secondaries?) which just has two 110V windings in series, I added dual secondaries of 33VAC with #15 which is much thicker than what most 500VA's use. (I've seen most use #16?)

does that mean I could get a bit more power from that than my expected 500VA?

Your VA rating would probably be somewhere between 500VA and 1000VA.

I just measured the winding resistances. I got 0.9 ohm on each 110V primary and 0.1 ohm on each 33V secondary.

I think that's good?
