Others have told me keep the diode. The filter cap is a worthless low 
value. The transformer can be used with some mods that are supposed to 
be real easy. Nothing wahoo huge but HV for smaller purposes. Nice 
blowers in there. Move lots of air. Round glass plates have worked for 
sanding crystals by others. Relays galore. You'll see when you get into 
it. Nothing real crazy but usable stuff for your collection.
