    Am looking for a good, read inexpensive, bench power supply. +-5, +-12,
    0-20VDC, and 0-20?VAC. Has anyone ever used a PC powersupply for the bench?

    Thanks,

    What do you require with regard to power for the 0-20VDC?

    and 0-20?VAC.

    A variac might be your best bet.

    No reason you cannot, but you might want to fuse it locally if you are
    working on low power circuits.

    Suggest you try ebay. Be certain to check out your purchase carefully,
    especially for load regulation and turn on conditions (i.e. +5 goes to +12
    at turn on....bad for most 5VDC circuits).
