Default Possible Ebay bargain

Hi all,
found this when browsing Ebay. Won 't get much attention due to the title - but looks like a good haul if you could collect;

http://cgi.ebay.ie/Valves-Tubes-job-...d=p3286.c0.m14

I have no connection to the seller

am i to believe that you feel this box is not as yummie as first suggested? I'm a newbie in tubes and wandered if someone could enlighten me on the contents of this box, and if it is going to be possible to discern between power transformers, output transformers and chokes, easily?

cheers stu

Default its a fair old mix..

although there only appears to be one "pair" or in fact a triple of "8036" trannies. Hard to say what the rest are but one is clearly a choke - it only hads two terminals.

I think the reference to the organ was made to highlight the total weight of the box! Could be wrong though...

Default almost impossible to know

its likely to be a manufacturer's OEM number - they could be anything, although the size would suggest OPT. An image of the transformers close up and personal showing terminations and leads if any would greatly assist!

hey-Hey!!!,
That thing in the upper left is an OPT. Secondaries on the right, and what looks like tapped plate coil connections on the left. Certainly there is a1, a2 and '+' and two I can't make out.
cheers,
Douglas
