I got a very ugly RD-50 from a friend of mine that I'm now trying to get in to shape again. The P.T. is missing due to some older attempt to fix it and now I can't get hold of the voltages of the secondary windings. My guess is 210 V (~ 100mA), 15-0-15 (~ .5 A)V and 6,3 V (~ 3A). Am I right or..?

It might be easier to buy a new one from Mojotone

Not if you live in Europe (230V) and have a close friend working at a transformator mfg who'll fix one free of charge...

Ouch! I guess that means free so the price is right. I honestly don't have access to that info but if you were REAL nice about it, you might ASK the people at mojo if they could read you the voltages off of THEIR spec sheet. You ARE trying to diagnose a problem. I would thing the secondary voltages would be a higher than that though. You might contact schumacher and see if they still have any listings or even heyboer or mercury magnetics and ask nicely! Sorry, I'm no freaking help. Mike.
