    I am wanting to build a 220Volt to 16 Volt 2 Amp power supply. When pricing the components to do this the cost of the transformer is US$25.00 which is really expensive.

    I know I can by a transfer on amazon or eBay, I don't want to do that. I want to build my own.

    I am looking for what I must look for in terms of a circuit diagram.

    i have been down this road many times when designing circuits, to find there is one ready made and cheaper on the web....

    Do you have any scrap electronics resources where you are?
    This may be one cheaper way of obtaining parts!

    I often find that when I am build a circuit the knowledge gained helps me in lots of other projects. Once I understand how it works and I can build it I usually can fix it, Make no mistake after that I buy bulk manufactured units

    you could modify an old Atx psu to give out 16v, if you get hold of one i can show you how to increase the output.
