Hi Paul,

Making one up is a waste of time IMHO because surplus commercial ones
are so cheap and readily available. I've never paid more than $20 for
one surplus and that includes some 60 amp units. Corcom,
Cornell-Dublier, Potter and Schaffner and others make units of all
different current capacities. They are available as surplus from a good
number of online suppliers and in my area, Rochester, NY, our two local
surplus dealers have them all the time. There might be some surplus
dealers in your area who would  have just what you need. I didn't see
the current requirement for the project..

The filter is placed between the outlet and the variac and don't forget
to ground the case of the filter or it won't do it's job.
