    Well... You need to buy one. Don't mess with DIY stuff you are connecting to mains anywhere between 100-24VAC

    I have reused MOT's microwave oven transformers by rewinding the secondary. But there very inefficent. Don't do what you plan to, the only green you will see is in the cemetery. Not worth the risk.
