I didn't snip it, perhaps someone else did previously. But I have used
transformers similar to these control transformers, and they put out
about 42 volts at the filter capacitor. You have to remember that the
transformer gives 28VAC at full load, so at much lower load, the
secondary AC voltage will be substantially higher. And after
rectification, it can go as high as 44 or so VDC which is about 31 to
32VAC times 1.414. If a regulator with 40V max is used, it will still
have an input voltage that exceeds its maximum.

----------------(from OED Mini-Dictionary)-----------------
PUNCTUATION - Apostrophe
Incorrect uses: (i) the apostrophe must not be used with a plural
where there is no possessive sense, as in ~tea's are served here~;
(ii) there is no such word as ~her's, our's, their's, your's~.
Confusions: it's = it is or it has (not 'belonging to it'); correct
uses are ~it's here~ (= it is here); ~it's gone~ (= it has gone);
but ~the dog wagged its tail~ (no apostrophe).
