    Where do you live? I've used old street light ballasts as cores. Usually they are 230 volt. Welded together cores which aren't too hard to cut apart. Save the 230 volt windings and wind 12-16 volt secondary. If you get your hands on one of these cores we can help you determine turns and wire sizes later.
