G’day all
I was wondering if anyone has a spare AO transformer for a Kriesler 11-84? Mine has a open primary for the internal speaker. I think it’s a 7k primary and a 3.5 ohm secondary.
Thanks

If you have trouble finding one, experiment with some 240 to 12 volt or similar power transformers.
The 240v side being the primary to the plate of course.
You may be pleasantly surprised and find one that works almost as well as the original.
Scrounge around in your plugpack box.

Vintage transformers in vic,
I had 2 rebuilt to spec by him and I was very happy with my transformers.
Mine were off a 11 77.
2 ohm 7000k.
The price for them was $50 per transformer.
He has a web site and you could just email him for a price .
Good service.!
Pete

If originality is not strictly important you could purchase a Multi-tapped output AF transformer from RS Components (210-6475) this has taps to provide 3-15 ohm secondaries and 4K to 15K primaries. Have used these numerous times with quite satisfactory results.

JFB I'd prefer to have a exact replacement or get it rewound but if I can't have either I'd definitely go with the RS solution thank you
Vintage Pete good to hear from you again!sounds like a reasonable price to pay. My Kriesler is in quite good shape and all original with the original miniwatt valves so is obviously low hour.

Does anyone know where I could get a replacement stylus for the BSR turntable?

A note of caution on crystal cartridges: the crystals used in them turn to mush over time, so even allegedly new old stock will be highly suspect. Ceramic is a better choice for replacement.

GTC.
Yes second hand is a buying duds!
These are rebuild and he sells many of them.
I think if it came out with crystal and you put ceramic in it then 2 caps need to be charged I know I had to do that before In a Kriesler as the sound was down after I put in a ceramic ,but you would know if that's the case .
In the real world , crystal is sh-t ceramic is sh_tty and MM is great but hard to adapt to old turntables,. So sometimes I feel it's best to just have it how it was meant to be originally .

I’d like to keep it original for the most part.
How hard would it be to install a ceramic? If I can’t ill just use a crystal but as GTC said they don’t last forever

This is the guy in QLD,
First link is ceramic.
Second link is crystal.
Cartridges of this type come with a need that's not much chop.
