Default Recognize this Transformer?

I was given these two trafos this weekend...

They are rigged up in a tube amp..dunno if it was for Radio applicaion or what...one is surely power, the other is a choke.

The numbers on them dont match any Thordarson model numbers i can find.

Can anyone shed some light on the specs, so i can use these in an amp ....(hopefully)

Why not find where the power leads and output leads are connected and measure their output.

I guess it'll be pretty hard to estimate the current capability of each winding, but I'm sure you can get an idea from the size of the wires and the core, which looks to be in the 250VA range.

Thanks for the reply,

I know i can test it and find out some of the specs...but i was more interested if anyone had any knowledge of Thordarson...and why i wouldn't be able to find these part numbers anywhere in any of their catalogs.

Perhaps it's very old and completely obsolete.

I haven't worked with any thordarson transformers so I wouldn't know much about them except for the fact that they look like decent transformers.
