David,What ever happened to T & R Electric? Awhile back, I'm astounded to see that it was in 2002, I purchased a 5 KVA pig from them for $199, delivered. They had their own truck and driver that traveled America's highways dropping off transformers along the way, sort of like Johnny Appleseed. I see that they still have an active web site so it might be worth a shot. Of course their corporate philosophy toward dispensing dangerous hardware to rank amateurs may have changed in the succeeding 16 years.

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?David ----- Original Message ----- From: "Allen Bishop via Tesla" <tesla@xxxxxxxxxx> To: "Tesla Coil Mailing List" <tesla@xxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Wednesday, April 25, 2018 8:53 AM Subject: Re: [TCML] Pole Transformers for sale HØ]?H[HHØ[ÈÙYHY?\?HØ\È[?HØ^H@ could have them ship thesmallest Kva unit they have but not a chance.
