    I live in NYC and I'm looking for a used, panel mount, small variac with an input of 120v and output of 120-132v 2 or 3amps. Does anyone know where I can find a used one? Smaller the better...

    I looked on ebay, but most of them look quite old or vintage...maybe I'm wrong and thats just the way they look.

    Unless some windings are burned, used ones should be ok.

    I have a box of them someplace.
    I'll look to see if any are ok after storage.
    And if I can find them.:)

    They suffered some over the years.:(

    However, I believe at least one may be serviceable,. Maybe two.

    1.75 amps. Less than 3" diameter.

    3 variacs X 3 @ $0.00 = $0.00 plus S&H

    If you need good condition or for critical application, better pass this up, and maybe someone else wants them to play.

    On the other hand if it works for you, I always appreciate a tip. :D

    2.5 lb each from 55941 USPS

    A larger one.
