Will this transformer be good for a fusor?

With no data and no testing, I would not give $5.00 for it. Another pig in a poke.

That power supply, while being the correct polarity and sufficient voltage, can only put out 0.33mA. While this will be enough voltage for fusion to occur, the number of fusions is dependent on current and you would be hard pressed to be able to measure the feeble amount of fusion from it.
