Default transformer cans/ covers source

Can anyone help with a source / supplier for transformer cans / tins / covers. See them on most commercially built and vintage equipment but can't seem to find a source for the diy'er.

Thanks Mikecj

But seriously..There are chrome covers available for oil filters on cars for cosmetic reasons.

Look for Bahrs die and stamping on the internet. They are the only US mfg for end bell type mounting covers. Cans can be had from Hammond up in Canada and for big bucks from Zero mfg. in CA. A west coast dealer for Bahrs is Ram Sales in LA. Call Bahrs Monday and see who they have locally, to supply your needs.

Thanks guys for the info......
OzMike... I've taken a look at tea tins and other assorted canned goods so you're not that far out of the ball park. Too bad Spam [the "meat"] has fallen so far out of favor that they only sell the small cans anymore. Probably not a bad thing though, even the dog turns her nose up at it.

Thanks again

Mike

Hi,

Have you checked in a dollar or Indian store that sells stainless kitchenware? This stuff is real stainless (magnet doesn't stick to it), comes in a variety of sizes and shapes and is dirt cheap.

Cheers!
