Title: What to do with this Transformer
Post by: wb6kwt on October 14, 2018, 07:17:13 PM
I was disposing of a shed and found this transformer inside. I'm not sure why I purchased it but must have been for an amp. I took a load of stuff to the local dump but thought this might be worth keeping. I'm going to Pacificon this weekend and will be taking a few things to sale but have no idea if this is worth taking and what it might be worth. Any suggestions if it's worth anything or off to the next E waste event.

Looks like a good plate xfmr.  Probably worth $50-$100 at a ham fest.

Iíve got one of those in my 4-1000A. Itís essentially two transformers on a single frame. Very versatile. The windings can be placed in series or parallel and, with five taps, all sorts of voltages are available. Itís a keeper.

Darn Darrell, I was going to tell him it was no good and I would take it to the dump for him! Lol
