I think the length would be about 5' tall.
I'm not on your list at this time. I just don't have enough spare
time to work on coiling at this time. Hopefully when I retire
I'll get back into it. You can post to the list and have those
interested contact me by e-mail or phone: 419-435-0753.
I would like to know ASAP if anyone is interested in them. The
T&D people will probably be removing them from the site in the
Next couple of weeks. Thanks.

Those look really cool. I know that potential transformers are always in
demand and everyone's always looking for capacitors.
Are you on the list? If not, I"m happy to post to the list and have
people contact you directly.
Can you tell me about how tall they are? 680lbs would lead me to believe
Anyway, yes, I'm sure there would be great interest by at least a few on
