Hello All,

Got a few of these little guys from an estate purchase.  Could not find anything on line within 10 seconds, so I went straight to the source:  The transformer itself.

Peerless elect. Prod.
Div. of Altec Lansing
Anaheim, California
Contract No. (33-604) 35817

115 VRMS
360/420 CPS

Secondaries (two, each are identical):
13.8 VRMS
0.035 AMP

Rated at 175 W.V. and do not operate these guys above 70,000 feet.  For those of you with SR-71's, sorry.

Physical dimensions are approximately 1 1/8" square x 2" tall (including the little j terminals).  Mounting via threaded holes on the end opposite the terminals. 

I have 4 of these.  All NOS in the original packaging.  One box has the bonus inspection stamp from a mouse.  

These should easily fit in a Small Flat Rate Box.   $7 seems like a nice random number, assuming these are actually useful to someone.  

Happy Holidays!

Best Regards,
