1 1000 VA
2 200-300 VA
3 200-300 VA
4 300-400 VA

If you compare the weight with commercial ones you can get an idea about how big they are.

Do they have useful output voltages?

I only know number 4 output volts. Its 55-0-55.

I am to scared to hookup number 1. Does it need a soft start circuit? It does have to wires comming out on to that goes to a cap, and it has wires going to a thing that looks like a brige rectifier, but it is not connected to the big blue and oragne caps. I will post some more pics of that.

Then number 3, I have connected it to the mains, but it makes a loud buzzing noise. Its this the windings coming loose? I don't think I will be able to use it for a amp.

And lastly number 4, that grey stuff in its middel it starting to breakup. Is this because it overheated at some time or is it just old age?

Thanks for all your help so far.
