Subject: I need a bigger variac.

I have a 1kVA variac (powerstat 116 120VAC/7.5A is the exact nameplate 
rating) and it vibrates when I crank it all the way up powering my two 
9kV 60mA transformers.  Is there any place I can get a 2-3kVA variac for 
$100 or less?  Soon?  

I know that these can be purchased at hamfests, but there aren't any in 
Boston in winter as far as I know, and I need the variac like, yesterday. 
 This is the only thing that keeps me from firing up to full power today. 
 Surplus catalogs that I've got have these for about $300+, but I know 
that when I was last at the Rochester Hamfest these were selling for 
around $20-$30.  Huge difference.
