I'm looking for several sizes. Smaller ones (power transformers ~ 300 to 
500 VA) that will require bobbins and larger ones (~ 3 to 4 KVA) that 
will get wound on a wooden form in a lathe before inserting the laminations.
It's just something I want to try as I've never wound a transformer.

I also have a couple I want to rewind, which I think it more difficult 
that straight winding with the separation and cleaning of the 
laminations followed by re-coating.
I'd like to be able to build an amp and say I build everything except 
the tube. <:-))

It's one of those things I may never get done but would like try.

Thanks for the information.
