Default Good prices on tranfsormers, where?

Hi all,


I'm looking for some transformers, preferably not too expensive
Surplus or second hand is OK, but there's not much choice on ebay.


Do any of you have a good adress?

Default Transformers

Hi Bricolo,

I bought a toroid at Reichelt last month, good prices i think. 800VA for close to 56,-. Never had much luck finding something I needed secondhand (transformers that is).

Greetings,

Jarno.

Yes, Reichelt has good prices on the toroids.

BTW, how much S&H did you have to pay?

Default S&H at Reichelt

Hi Bricolo,

I had a look at the proforma quote I got from them, and it's not quite clear but I think it's 22,50 + VAT so together that would be something like 25,-. Of course I ordered not just the transformer but also some other stuff, the transformer was the heaviest bit in the order though (and it's huge!).
It's a shame their minimumorder amount is a bit stiff.

Greetings,

Jarno.

Hi,
J&N Factors of Bolney, Sussex, UK usually have a wide range of surplus transformers (and all sorts of other stuff, including silver plated / PTFE wire) at silly prices. It's a bit of an 'eccentric' company, but they've been going for years.
Shipping might cost a bit, but they offer a discount to callers at their warehouse if you fancied a trip over. Phone (01444)881965 and discuss your requirements with Mr. Bull.

I didn't know Trafoshop, very nice website indeed. Too bad their price are about 150% of reichelts'
Dnsey, I guess that J&N store hasn't got a website?


Greetings,

Jarno.
