Variac, and Vintage Publications For Sale:

5 amp plus Variac:

This is a Powerstat brand Variable Autotransformer, Model 217BU.
The name plate says it is rated at 5 amps, but also says 240
Volts, 7 Amps Maximum.

Obviously, it would be great for slowly bringing up some of the
older equipment.

This unit includes the large knob, and scale.

With paper work for $45 plus shipping from Florida.
It should ship fine in a medium size postal service flat rate
priority box.
