The postage on a mains trannie from the UK would be a lot cheaper to the Netherlands than from the US. Try Maplins:

They have a mains trannie suitable for your amp - code XP27E - which has a 240v secondary at 100ma and 6.3v at 1.5A. Cost 12.99 (18.50).

I've tried using mains trannies as output trannies in amps before, but I'd only recommend it as an emergency replacement. Frequency response often leaves much to be desired and core saturation is always possible (although not a problem in a push-pull amp).
Some cheap SE outputs

Otherwise butchering an old Dansette record player or reel to reel would be another cheap source

Yes, if Tschrama doesn't mind used components then he could try the junk shop at Past times Radio. They strip down old valve radio chassis of sets beyond repair and test and sell on the usuable stuff. Mains trannies from 6, and output trannies from 7.

I've bought stuff from them before, and they are nice approachable people. If Tschrama e-mails them his requirements, I'm sure they could sort some suitable trannies out.

316a, before butchering an old Dansette record player, did you see the Dansette radiogram on eBay last week that went for 101? I'd bought the same model about 10 years ago at a junk shop to strip for parts for 2!
