Default Output transformer wanted

I am rather seriously looking for a Partridge Williamson output transformer with UL taps, to partner an existing one.

They came potted in a metal enclosure with slightly convex sides, parallel top and bottom, ceramic terminals. Size about 14 x 12cm, by 10cm high. My existing one is gold coloured, but that is not serious. It would however be of great value if the original Partridge sticker on one side is still in place.

Thanks

I believe www.sowter.co.uk does replicas. check out antique vintage part of their site etwas. Alternatively www.transformers.uk.com. Not sure regarding case styles. None are cheap and expect transporting costs = 1/3 of iron cost extra.

That particular curved style was also used by Gardners, greyish stove enamelled hammer finish and quality made for a battle.

Thanks Rich!

Yes, I fear that the cost may be high, therefore I would only (possibly) do that for an original.

I have in fact a similar Gardner potted power transformer that I can "de-case" to get an enclosure for a replica. We also have good winders locally; the design and making of such is thus not a problem. I guess I am a little sentimental about an original plus badge, that is why I am trying. But common sense might dictate that I go the way of a replica (local).
