^done that way ensures trouble....
unless nylon plastic shoulder washers are used to insulate at least one end of the U-bolt....

the best advertisement for a good audio design is the number of diy'ers wanting to build it after all the years....never the say so of so called gurus....

My case was pretty sturdy, so I just bolted it to the casing using the supplied securing disc and bolt. I used a rubber disc to buffer the windings against the case.

Somewhat old thread, but since I just bought some brackets in post 6 and 22 from Steve at Apex Jr.Home Page I thought I'd let anyone interested know that his brackets will mount an Antek 4220, or any other 5.1" diameter transformer. There's not a lot of extra room, but on the plus side, the bracket is stiffer than it looks in the picture.

Another happy apexjr customer. Ordered Thursday, changed the order before it shipped, and got it Monday.

I went to Wickes (our local builders merchant) and bought some 65 x 90mm pre-drilled steel brackets - less than 2 each.
