>You may want something to monitor the current draw as you bring it up

I have a current monitor. Are you advocating bringing it up on the variac, whilst watching draw? Does anyone think there could be any risk involved? With linear PSUs I think variacs are a great idea, but I am nervy with items that might have switching supplies. My understanding is that a lot of TVs from this period had switching PSUs (they are not a modern invention!). Is there a chance that the Racal from 1972 might?
