Variac (or Equivalent) anyone?
- Does anyone have a Variac (or equivalent variable autotransformer) which
I could borrow? Mine seems to have lost the carbon contact on the
rotating part, and provides zero voltage at any part of the rotation of
I'm trying to make sure an AL-80 amplifier has good capacitors in the
HV supply part of it. I was planning to "soak it in" at 30 volts up
through120 volts so if they needed reforming from lack of use, they'd
reform their dielectric rather than becoming a short circuit.
Please advise by private message. Also, is there an electric shop in
town which could provide parts for my variac? All I need is a small
carbon brush, and probably a spring, and I'm 99.44% sure my variac would
