    Yep - I figured the smallest SAFE size for a single box would be 16x16x14 but even if you did 14x14x14 that won't make any difference whatsoever - it would be exactly the same price

    And at 48 pounds for the supply, it would be TRASHED by the time it got here. I'd not try to ship something like that without using really stiff double boxing that's oversized - pushing the cost probably to $130 or more

    Yup!
    At 50 lbs for shipping and a 16x16x16 box (just for an estimate), Priority mail from Seattle to Newington CT would be $120.65 Retail Ground is $107.67.

    Sold for $103.51 + $50 shipping. Still a good deal, not incredible deal though.

    If it works... Anything being sold "As is" is just that.

    Linear power supplies are pretty easy to work on unless it has a bad transformer.

    Consider the price of a new one with the meters!

    I found transformers easy to rewind. When I was photoetching PCBs ca 1980, I made one for a 30A linear PS (link). Then, when I learned heavy iron isn't cheap, I realized I had a defective HV xfmr of sufficient size. So, I rewound it. I still use the PS. :)

    If it is "worth it" to find out, why don't YOU make the final bid?:confused:
