    Hi all,

    I'm new to this group, but I thought people here might be able to help
    with this question.

    I'm looking for some big variacs for motor control and science
    projects. I've got a couple already but they're open-frame and I'm fed
    up of having to put them in an enclosure and switch off the power to
    adjust them. Plus I'm planning to build them into a power supply and
    I'd like another for experiments.

    I'm looking for an enclosed, bench variac in a 240 V / 10 A rating or
    higher. I also might need a 415 V / 10 A variac in the future, but this
    could be open-frame, and I might consider a faulty three phase unit.
    Please let me know if you have anything available, or know of any good
    sources of surplus.

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    Best wishes,

    Chris Tidy
