I have several friends who rewound the microwave transformers for use in other projects. My recollection is that one result was a high current source for a 13.8 vdc power supply. I think the "how to" was captured in some amateur radio magazine article within the past 5 years. I've not done it myself but was told that it is not that difficult.
