Re: Are CRT trannys OK?
Depending on the age these have a B supply of 800v-3kV or so - voltages went up over time as size increased, etc, you probably have an A supply of 1.5-6.3 VAC - again depends on age. You mentioned no other tubes. If so you have a SS rectifire which means your tranny is probably 6.3/1,500 and up. If there's a rectifier tube then you've also got a winding of 2v - 5VAC for it. Generally the trannies are only good for repairing other scopes.
