Default Variac

Anyone have a variac for sale? For use in restoring valve radios.
Based in Wigan area and willing to travel a reasonable distance to collect.

Hi Lynton
I have (Japanese?) one which I think works, and which is surplus - I'm in Manchester. PM me, and meanwhile I'll have a dig around. If I find it and it works, it will cost a bit less that whatever they sell for on ebay, in the form of a charity donation.

(Just been to have a look. I have a 'Slidup' unit by the Yokohama Electric Works - I think - which is 5A max. It works, on a 60W bulb which is all I had handy, it's in good condition, and it hums a good bit at 100Hz like they do!)
