Hi All. Thanks for all the suggestions. The case I'm using is salvaged from an old amp and it's a really heavy duty case so weight shouldn't be a problem. The transformers are Antek as you mentioned. They weigh about 13 lbs. each and are about 6 1/4" in diameter. The case also has a lot of height (about 10 1/2"), so I thought I would build a two level platform to hold them both. That way I could leave about 1 1/2 inches between them for cooling. Does that seem reasonable?

Best Wishes,

More than reasonable as long as you have plenty of clearance between mouting bolt and top plate.
And while they may not be as strong as apes, don't lock eyes with 'em, don't do it. Puts 'em on edge. They might go into berzerker mode; come at you like a whirling dervish, all fists and elbows.
