    I used this thing for weight in my Tacoma for the last month. Sold it for scrap yesterday. 206 lbs.

    I’m thinking Tahiti and those fancy water bungalows are in my distant future.




    Very distant, I got $13.50 for it.

    Now you just need to find 999 more of them and you go on your vacation
    I live for today, I'm just a day behind.

    Had you been physically closer I'd have paid you at least $25

    I may have been able to use it as a variable power supply for some motor test work.

    Had I been closer I would have delivered it free. Made me a bit sick to sell it for scrap.

    What will make you sicker is knowing that for the month you carry it around in the back of your truck that extra weight probably cost you more than $13.50 in gas.

    It is interesting though to see Legacy equipment like that... What replaced it? Do they still make that unit, and if so, how much would it cost now? (even New Old Stock or refurbished)
    Electricians do it until it Hertz!

    You could have made a line voltage regulator.

    I could have, but I have a shop full of small experiments now, let alone a 200 lb one. Especially one with far more power than incorrectly testing GFCIs.

    I scrapped three VFDs for the al heat sinks. Anyone in the market for some rectifiers and SCRs? I have the caps too. I want to see what the output of the rectifiers looks like on 1ph first.
