Default Help on transformers please

Hi all, I need help to identify the usage of these transfomers. Is it worth keeping? Thanks

Take a picture of each transformer instead of the group. One looks like an output transformer but I cannot read anymore than that.

Yes, they are quite useful, and worth keeping.

The Parmeko "Neptune Series" 6000/71 is a power transformer with selectable 200-250VAC mains and 250V and 350V secondary taps @ 180ma. Assuming that you are in a 230-240VAC country, this would be very useful for a SE amp. It has a 3A 5V winding for tube rectification as well.

The Gresham "inductor" is a 20H choke rated at 70ma. This would be great for a preamp CLC power supply, as the current rating is a little low for a power amp.

The Lux OY-15 appears to be a 3.8K PP output transformer with screen grid taps which is also very useful for a PP amp. The multiple secondary impedances as well as the screen grid taps will allow many possibilities for output tubes. This can operate in Triode, UL, or pentode mode.

Since it appears that you have a single output transformer, you can entertain building a MI amp.

Please confirm that the stamped numbers are "3.8K", they are a little hard to make out in the pic. Roughly how large is this transformer? maybe a picture with a few other common items would be useful, as you'll need to determine/guess the power rating for this one.

Can you post another close up pic of the other Parmeko transformer? The existing pic is too blurry to make out.....

(Thanks, yes im in 230v country.)

(Thanks, whats a CLC power supply.)

(Thanks, heres the pic http://i697.photobucket.com/albums/v...9/DSC_0058.jpg its a 6.6k)

(Thanks, heres the pics http://i697.photobucket.com/albums/v...9/DSC_0061.jpg. Its a 10H 180ma what can it use for?

The black transformer is without any specs. Its T52-158 A-AS-RLC. What is it use for. http://i697.photobucket.com/albums/v...DSC_0057-1.jpg

The 10H 180 ma choke would work great in a CLC SE power amp power supply. I imagine that it came off of the same amp as the 180ma power transformer.

If you are looking for a beginner project to use some of this iron and have a circuit board to build on, consider the TubeLab Simple SE. Tubelab George sells the PCBs for about $35 + shipping. This is a cathode biased design using common output and driver tubes. You could use the power transformer and the 10H choke for this no problem. There are lots of other SE designs on the forum here as well.

Since you only have one output transformer, you'll have to pick up a pair to do a stereo SE amp. Consider the Edcor XSE series, very affordable and a great value.

Where are you located?
