Default Variac

Very nice sturdy variac, about the size of a shoe box. It doesn't say so, but I seem to recollect it was rated at 2A. I bought this some time ago, but was given an 8A bench-mounted variac shortly afterwards, so I've never used it in anger. On testing it, I found I was getting no output, so I took the cover off and found everything was working perfectly. I put it back together and once again got no output, and it's remained in that condition ever since. It's obviously an intermittent connection and an easy fix.

Main output is via a round-pin 5A socket at the rear, but there's an ancilliary binding post output on the front. Output is from 0VAC to about 260VAC

40 plus carriage (considerably less than I paid for it!) or you can collect at Cottesmore LE15.

Cheers,

Frank

Thank you Frank, lying on floor with a bad back, nothing to do but surf and feel sorry for myself of course.

Best, Sean.
