    Please tell me if this is an appropriate forum, or suggestions where to go (there's an invitation!)...

    I don't want to SPAM, but want to find appropriate electronic communities

    I have probably thousands of pounds of NOS excess inventory power transformers from Heath(kit) and am trying to find web 'neighborhoods' where I can offer specific transformers with specs at reasonable prices. eBay has been pretty worthless a venue for such items. I dumped all the used, engineering samples and Chinese part numbered items that I could never ID, so everything is unused. Where there are any cosmetic issues like dings, dents, surface rust (from damp carton or storage along Lake Michigan coast; no immersion!), etc. I describe them conservatively.

    I have not had the time to catalog them by voltages, currents, etc due to other commitments, so what I do is look up data on one group (box) at a time, and describe them as I find items I envision at 'global need' for. Most are 120 only primary, some 120/240, soem 240 only; most are LV with a few higher voltage. Nothing 'drop-in' for Williamson tube amps. No more OPT's left either. It's hard for me to say 'yes, I have an exact equivalent item in response to requests. Where I have data, it is usually qualified additionally with an example test circuit described to the mfr of the xfmr. Most were made in Illinois by one of two companies. If not made in US, I can identify those. (US mfr's have EIA codes on them).

    Thanks for the time & BW & apologies if inappropriate.
