Matt and others,
I have a few large doughnut N.O.S. 60's color TV flybacks (FLY-445) for direct
25 kVDC without a tripler in a vacuum tube set as you describe encased in
silicone, not the crappy earlier wax jobs, for sale for $30 US each which
includes P&H to Canada or Continental US.  Contact me off list if interested.
