Eddie:
the ONLY transformer in a 5 tube radio would most likely be the audio
output transformer fed from a 50L6 or 50C5 (or similar) tube which in
turn would feed a 4 or 5 inch speaker. There is literally nothing
special about these low power, low fidelity transformers.... if it
were me, I would obtain a cheap and even non-working tube radio at a
garage sale or thrift store and rob the transformer that you need....

Cheap non working tube radios are getting hard to come by, Antique
Electronic Supply usually carries an assortment of these transformers
though.
