Does anyone know where i might source a transformer for one of these pain in the backside ceiling shandaliers ( spelling probably wrong)

Its got about a dozen 5w lamps in it, i'm a bit wary of fitting a standard 65vA downlight type transformer because of the lack of airflow inside the enclosure. I'm not even sure if its possible to do that anyway ?

I'm tempted to tell him to bin the fitting and get another.

Chandelier?

What sort of thing is in there at the moment? (toroidal? electronic?) I'm just thinking that a like-for-like replacement is less likely to give problems than trying to mix-and-match.

Aurora do a range of transformers in different shapes and sizes that will replace most of the ones I've found inside light fittings.

Yes thats the sort of thing. cheers. i hope its not that sort of money mind you its a bit of a posh gaff.

i haven't taken the fitting down yet Andy ive got to call in later in the week,

Cheers John, i'll take a look at what Aurora do. Its just one of those little jobs where you have to go back twice, probably fit a temporary light, source materials then the customer wonders why it costs so much.
