[Boatanchors] Kenyon Transformer

Well, a snag has arisen.

When I turned on the PS, I had 1700V on the meter.  When I pulled the 866s 
to wash them, one was cold, because of open heater.  On a whim, I put the 
good one on the other side and got NO DC!  Yep, one side of the nice Kenyon 
is wide OPEN.  I opened the case, but the windings are potted in tar and 
there's no hope for repair.  It's now in the recycling pile!  I don't have 
anything of similar size that will do 1700V, si I'll likely make up a bridge 
for one of the lower voltage ones I have and feed with a variac.

Ho Hum, still a nice amp and a fair deal...
