Rated at 2.5 amp., this mighty mouse Variac (variable transformer) can EASILY handle INDUCTION fan motor speed on a circulator size up to a Freshy model 23.

$5 at an antique shop. 


Psssssssssssst.....the vendor no doubt is an old boy with education in the electrical field.  How do I know he is an old boy?.......He is marketing electrical equipment to assist others with OTHERS in mind.  :clap:

Roughly 2 3/4" in diameter.  The little guys are peppered on ebay.  If you patient you will find them at junk  shops, flea markets.  People strip them out of electrical do dabs.  Watch that your amperage rating exceeds your fan motor's amperage draw.

Russ, I saw that the Variac you have was branded GE but was made in Fort Wayne, Indiana, Didn't realize that GE had a plant in Fort Wayne, Indiana. :wondering:
