Default Re: ILP transformers

I've given some thought to a rewind or even adding to the existing primary winding. The tx is most likely going to be a 60hz version, so I'm taking it that to get 50hz at 110v the primary would need another 20% of copper wiring and likewise the same for the 2 secondaries. If going for 240v complete rewind the first problem is that I don't have that amount of enamelled copper wire.

Whilst I appreciate that a rewind is possible, and thanks Joe for the pointer on how to approach the job, I don't think it would be viable in cost and time required for me to attempt it. I'll offer it in the for sale section. Re posting to USA the lowest price I found was about 40, so probably not viable as Andy has stated.
