Default Where to get transformer parts?

As the topic mentions, there seems to be quite a few of retailers and manufacturers of transformers that are suitable to be used in tube equipment. But I haven't seen any single store that retails transformer parts, i.e. EI-core laminates with end frames, bobbins etc. Does anyone know any such store (preferably in europe)?

M6 grain oriented silicon steel laminations for example for ouput transformers.

I think its both easier and cheaper if you just buy the OPTs you need.

Easier, by far; cheaper, heck no.

If you don't want to spend anything at all, dig up some old power transformers (of any sort, from anything), take 'em apart, glue together a bobbin and get winding.

Perhaps, but why don't simply buy the amplifiers you need

I've found a local winder.(less than 50Km from here) who accepted to sell me lams, bobbin and so on.
Try this way !

I know some profesional providers too, but they have minimal qty per command line, need for "grouping" orders.
Could be done if sufficient people are interrested ?

Yves.
