    Hi, Dan!

    Imagine seeing you here! Small world...

I bought my pig from Dr. Cox at Resonance Research. Probably any way you go about it you'll end up paying about the same: a used pig from Dr. Cox is cheaper, but shipping can be a killer. Buying a refurbished unit from a dealer closer to you will be more expensive, but will save you some on shipping. I was happy with Dr. Cox's service, and the quality of the pig I got from him. I'd expect down your way there'd be a "pig graveyard" from Katrina. If you find any used ones local, pop the lid and check for water in the bottom of the can (under the oil). :)


There's some pigs sitting around close to me that I could probably have for free, but they're all 4kV or less, and most are bigger (25kVA).
