Default Output transformers FS -- Sydney

Hi, I have a number of good output transformers to sell, since I won't be using them anytime soon.... I *think* the prices on these are reasonable -- if not just let me know why not My strong preference is to ship these only within Australia because of the high cost of overseas shipping. I can accept payment by bank transfer or by Paypal from a bank account (i.e. no credit cards). Thanks! Any questions just ask, I will take photos on request.

All transformers are in pairs. I'm putting in approx shipping weight, you can get postage prices on http://www.auspost.com.au/. Don't forget Registered Post and insurance... I'm in Sydney's Northern Beaches, you are welcome to come over and check any of these out if you are interested.
  • Eico output transformers for EL84, from an HF-81 or HF-86. 7.5k primary, 4, 8, 16, and 32 (!) ohm output taps. You can rebuild the Eico HF-86 if you like (I can provide a copy of this circuit and some others), or do something newer like the ST-35 clone from diytube.com. The end bells have 32013 stamped on them. Some patches of surface rust. A$100 for the pair. Shipping weight approx 2.5 kg.
  • Keroes Enterprises Output Transformer. 6.6k primary, cloth leads. This pair has been repainted at some time, and frankly it's a pretty average job so you might want to repaint them yourself. Otherwise, they are physically identical to the Acrosound TO-300, and the DC measurements I made a few years ago are identical too. Herb Keroes and David Hafler formed Acrosound in 1950 and separated in 1954. Halfer went on to start Dynaco, I don't know what happened to Keroes but my *wild guess* is that he continued to make transformers and that this pair is from that time. (If you have any better information than I, feel free to post it here.) Here is a pair of Acrosound TO-300 that sold for a pretty solid price on eBay. This pair, A$200. Shipping weight approx 6 kg.
  • Magnequest FS-030 NOS in boxes. 3k primary, for 2A3 or 300B SET. These are new unused in boxes. The transformers do not actually have anything painted or engraved on them but the boxes say "FS030 OFC 15/24" and "FS030 OFC 16/24". The secondary leads have the same coloring as on the Magnequest site here. Primaries are both black, one has a white sleeve on it. A used pair of FS-030 recently sold on eBay for US$445 (A$591) (link ). This new in box pair: A$600. Shipping weight approx 11 kg.
  • Dynaco A-470... with junker ST-70 chassis and PT attached! PICKUP ONLY on this one. Cloth leads, OPTs in good condition with some surface rust, chassis is in bad shape (hey, it's free). A$200.

Thanks Sorry for the longwinded FS post...

Thought I might just give these a bump before trying other places to sell. If you are able to pick up, make an offer... Thanks


PS I also have a Quad II resto project for pickup, if anyone's interested.
