What differentiates isolation transformers from other
types?  If I were to use, say a 110VAC to 12.6 VAC and
connect that to a reversed 12.6 VAC to 110 VAC, would
that combination qualify as an isolation transformer,
functionally?  I've been thinking of doing a back to
back transformer in an S-38B that Ive restored.

The schematics I've seen of isolation transformers
don't look like this (a regular transformer):

---\  |  /---
   /  |  \
   \  |  /
---/  |  \---

Hmm, actually that's pretty pathetic; nothing looks
like that.  Anyway, the isolation transformer
schematics have a common winding, or something; I
can't recall exactly.
