    I would like to take the transfo of my microwave and use the high output to be able able to make fractal wood burning with it. I think I solve the transfo wiring but want to make sure it's the easyest way to do it. Just for info last time I play with electronics is 15 year and +. Tank you for your help I'll upload soon picture.



    what i think would be the good way to make it work.

    What you think is 'three phase' actually isn't. It will be a low voltage centre-tapped voltage applied to the INVERTER board. It's the inverter board that converts this LOW voltage to the high voltage for the microwave function.

    Sadly (for you), using this high voltage output from the inverter to 'burn' things won't work - it'll only destroy the inverter board (or, if you're lucky, activate the built-in protection)
