Hello again !

Here's the weight/size update for the "Free Plate Transformers To A Good
Stancor 52C046
14 1/2 x 11 1/2 x 9 1/2  103 pounds
Which I believe is a BC-610 transformer.  If so, it should be rated at -
117 VAC tapped to provide 4000 or 5000 V.C.T. @ 500 ma.

And, an

American Transformer Co. model 26579
15 x 11 1/2 x 10 1/2  Weight 124 pounds
6200 VCT 2 kV

Has four primary terminals -- 0.2 ohms or less between
any of them -- apparently adjusts for primary voltage
perhaps -5%, 0%, +5%, +10% ?
They will have to be crate since both transformers have ceramic/Steatite
insulators protruding from them which must be protected from breakage.

They're up for grabs -- free to a good home.

I'll figure out how to get them to UPS if you want either or both of them.
Then I'll ask that you purchase the UPS "Pack and Ship Promise" shipping and
have them crated since they're very heavy!

If anyone's interested in one or both of them, I'll Hi-Pot test them and
make certain there are no shorts and that with AC on the primary they make
proper voltage on the secondary. Otherwise, they'll go to the dump.

If anyone is in a position to pick them up or to send someone for them that
person will get priority interest.  As a 68 year old heart attack survivor,
I really would prefer not to be lifting them!!

Many, many thanks !
