How much did he charge you to ship to Canada, and what service did he ship them with?

If you want to use them to their full VA, connect to 240V (get, or install yourself, a stove circuit or whatever wired) and use a 32V buck transformer.

I planned on de-rating them about 10% and wiring them backwards for some regulated 250VDC power supplies.

PS: I still haven't heard from the seller...

S&H on them was USD$49.75, so USD$70 for 3.8kVA of transformer. Not too shabby.

just a parenthetic )( note -- shipping to US to Canada is cheapest via the USPost Office -- with FedX and UPS there is sometimes an expediter involved which will crush you.

I was saving to purchase two transformers for a project, over $400 from Plitron, these will work perfectly and for 1/4 of the price. NICE!

Speaking of transformers, not the manufacturer's name on this one.

Mr Teal would it be too much to ask for you to take a picture of the label on one of those trafos?

Thanks

Also if this guy expects to be paid within 10 days of auction end, then I think he should be in a hurry to contact us and/or the 10 day period should start when he finally contacts us. It bothers me to no end when these sellers take forever to contact buyers... ARG!
