Power transformer question
I have a transformer that is 740 v ct
And has two separate secondaries that are 7V.
Can someone explain how these would be used?
Thank you in advance.
I will post a sketch.

They are probably 6.3 volt windings. The voltage will be a bit high if the windings are not loaded.

Thank you Frank.
I am going thru a plethora of iron and seeing what's what.
I am getting pressure to make room by my better half.
Thanks again!!

Okay, so to take my question another step further......
Can you think point me in a direction for a preamp that I could use this on?
Or should I use the search button? Hehe
Thank you.

I'm sorry for such a "broad" question.
I was in a self imposed rush for no reason. It must be the ADD !
I will sketch something up and hopefully will get a critic on a design.
I have built a few "Frankenstein" preamps- but always based on someone else's design.
Want to build something from the ground up with the iron and tubes I have. Unfortunately I have no output transformers. - so another preamp.....

looks like you have a big traffo there, a preamp with power amp can be built with that...

No OPTs'?......Keep looking! If your burn't out on pre-amps consider an amp itself. Perhaps you can swap iron with someone.??
Does the TX in question have any ampere ratings????
If indeed it is a "monster" have wide-open possibilities!!!

It probably came out of a piece of test equipt. Not sure but seems to be quality.i would like to use it.
I would love to find someone interested in a trade so I could get some OPT's
I haven't brought it up but I have quiet a few tubes I could trade. But anyway.
Thanks fr everyone's input.
I find it unbelievable the amount of help that is available on this forum.
You guys can really make me feel lazy sometimes! Haha
Thanks, Johnny
