Default torroidal x-former suppliers?

I'm looking for a source for output/power torroidal x-formers. Aside from Plitron, I'm having a pretty difficult time finding anyone.
Any recommendations? Anyone know about this source:
http://rogerk.freeyellow.com/ ? I've tried to contact, but never get a response...

TIA
Matt

I use Victoria Magnetics for all of my transformer needs:

http://www.victoriamagnetics.com

They can make any custom transformer that you want, for a reasonable price. They are located in Atlanta, GA. I have gone down there several times and talked with the owner and watch him wind my toroidal transformers.

Good luck,

plitron is great, but when I was trying to get a custom transformer, they wanted to charge me a large setup charge, and victoriamagnetics doesn't have one. If you are going for a configuration that already exists with plitron, it will be a bit cheaper then getting it from victoria magnetics, but for custom, price out victoria magnetics before ordering from plitron.

good luck,

Try

www.toroid.com

They make a kit, so you can work out the voltages you need and wind yourself. This should appeal to all of you DIYers here.

Hi,

Plitron does make a quality product. Only thing I have run into was that when ordering was told waiting time was three weeks, and turned out to be seven. Just don't be in a hurry if not ordering something they have in stock. YMMV

Regards,
Greg

"NO CATALOG CUSTOM WORK"

They claim to be "America's premier coil winder"
"Engineering * Rewinding * Prototypes"
"We design and build transformers for any power amplifier tube"

This is not an endorsement. I know nothing of these people aside from being regular advertisers in AudioXpress.

If some body has comments (pro or con) feel free to add.
