Re: [TCML] Pole Transformers for sale

I wouldn't call it deception.  More like just complying with their absurd or ignorant sales terms.  It's gotten far too crazy these days, with everyone afraid of being sued for someone else's stupidity.

I just moved to San Antonio in September (okay still moving my junk) but haven't looked for much around here yet.

I bought my 10 KVA pig from T&R Electric about 15 years ago for $275 as I recall. I picked it up myself though and I paid them on the spot in cash. To be sure they would sell to me, I made up a story that I was starting a neon sign shop and needed the pig as a bombarder. Fortunately they didn't know anything about making neon signs because my knowledge about that subject was only skin deep. It seems like I read a posting on here some time back stating that T&R Electric would no longer sell to the public. There was a lot of lamentation about that. If so, you may need an appropriate cover story. I hate deception but if that is what it takes to get a pole pig, then some deception may be necessary unfortunately.

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.
