Re: Variacs Wanted

Let me get this straight, other than being a piece of crap, this 'variac' 
which is not a variac (trade name infringement) is a 'good' piece of 
equipment?  Listen to what you wrote, you replaced everything but the darn 
windings.  So, you'd rather spend money on Chinese junk than the same 
amount on something American made, although used and 10 or 20 years old, 
but would last for 50 years + with minimal upkeep?

I refuse to go into a Wallmart or K-Mart for those reasons (never been there)
