Allen,Try keeping an eye on eBay. Occasionally, a nice deal on a smaller pole pig, or sometimes even a PT, will show up on eBay from time to time. There's just about always oversized ones list on there (or very over priced ones when it come to PTs), but with perseverance, sometimes a real deal will show up. I recently obtained a 3 kVA rated 155:1 (18.6 kV) PT for $75 off of eBay. The only caveat was that at 225 lbs (+ the weight of the shipping pallet), it cost me just over $200 to ship it, but still <$300 total invested into a real beast of a dry type potentital transformer is a decent deal. Also, although it's probably been some 20 years ago now, I seem to recall someone, probably on this list, mentioning that they could get them for a reasopnable cost from the local electrical utility company in the Denver area.? Maybe check into that?

I gave them a call to see if there was any way I could have them ship the smallest Kva unit they have but not a chance. I live in Colorado Springs so there’s no chance fo me to pick one up. I’m looking for a really small unit from 1 to 5 Kva. Looks like I’ll never get to have a pole pig coil.Sent from my iPadOn Apr 24, 2018, at 9:22 PM, Miles Mauldin <TeslaMiles@xxxxxxx> wrote:I'll byte, looks like an hour and a half drive for me. Their web site and Facebook page are exclusively centered on buying scrap metal and demo / removal services. Do they sell, and I would assume in working condition, whole units?

There is a company named TRC America located in Zellwood that re-cycles transformers. They sell them for $7.00 dollars per kva. I got my 10 kva unit a couple months ago.
