them to save us crating and shipping, they are HEAVY!
About the Variacs. My Dad had a friend look at the triple gang. This man collects them and he
knows much about them. It looks to be 40 to 50 amps each variac 3 phase there were no numbers
on them that they could find. This is all the info they could find. My Dad`s friend said that they
could be used single phase.They did not find a voltage rating . This unit is very nice like new.
The 30 amp is a Powerstat type 146-10005B spec BP177511 it is in great shape
works great runs up to around 170 volts. Does not have a knob.
The 20 amp is a Powerstat enclose unit the only number I could find on it
is GP5800 this was on the aluminum face partially under the knob. This one will run up
to just over 200 volts but starts to buzz at about 180 does not seem to get hot but
pulls heavy current.
All of these are in great shape. I can send pictures if you like.
