    I’ve been looking at new transformers and have a question. I need a 2.5v secondary for the filaments and pilot lights. All I can find are secondary’s with 6.3v. The 6.3 is center tapped so I could get 3.15v but I don’t know if that little extra voltage will blow out the filaments. It’s a 5 tube set and uses an 80 rectifier and has 2 pilot lights.
    Is there a way to get around this or am I worrying for nothing?
    Is there a source for transformers with the 2.5v secondary.
    The transformer I’m looking at is a Hammond, P-T273DX.
    Thanks!! 🙂

    Hi Shayne

    I have attached a good listing of Hammond transformers which shows quite a few 5 volt centered tapped transformers. I am not sure if you have a source where you were planning to order one from if not I have used Mouser Electronics in Kitchener and any time I have used them been very satisfied.

    Hope this helps
