I think you can probably glue the bakelite back together with the 2
ton clear epoxy. that epoxy seems to have great insulation
properties. I have used it to glue porcelain.
Unless I am mistaken that transformer has a tertiary winding but I
don't know the turns or impedance ratio. the rig it was intended for
must have had a screen grid. I am told those transformers were pretty
easy to find at hamfests in the past. Like a lot of good things such
as real FT243 crystals they are hard to find now.
I bet using that 60 Hy reactor improves the frequency response of that
transformer and its power handling. I think it was gapped for B+
through the secondary.
