Another journey came to the end and because of that several new journeys they are going to begin.  8) 

Kiriakos Triantafillou proudly presents his very own design of modern made Variac transformer for laboratory use.
Most to all parts used in this project they are all certified and branded, I am now officially an IEC fanboy ;D

While most of my work will look familiar to other professional electricians, I will simply clarify that for DC fan I just added a single diode and a small capacitor, DC output this is 7.5V and this helping the fan to operate silently.

Industrial switch this at zero position it does cut-off neutral and phase.
Position one: This is LINE transformer wiring, and translates to adjustment of Mains available voltage down to zero.
 
Position two:  This is Boost transformer wiring, and translates to boost of 230V up to 270 ACV.
According to specific variac transformer user manual, only LINE mode this warrantied  2.1KVA in complete adjustable range.
In Boost mode with consumption of 8A there is slight loss of boost voltage at about 4~5 volts.

In summary this is one indestructible work horse, combining best technology and parts over planet earth, and this having also an Made in Greece product design. 
Total weight 10 Kilos.  ;)

Excellent job with factory looking!
Very good construction with care even for any detail.
The bannana plugs are in parallel with AC socket for measurements i suppose?
Also allow me to suggest you to put a handle, in order to make the carrying easier.
Now you have a very useful instrument.

I was puzzled for adding or not a handle, all those months.
Due this transformer design and placement, weight balance this is not equally distributed and 95% of weight this is at front panel.
I did thought for a top handle, but this eliminates the option about to add second equipment at the top of this case.
Then I though to add two handles at the front, but this box it is tremendously space limited speaking of how much wide this is.

Front banana plugs they do serve for voltage confirmation purposes.

Variac transformer this is source device, for example ups equipment will be connected to it and one special electrical break-out box will be connected at ups output.
Right now I am working to make this special electrical break-out box.   ;)

Variac Powerstat 226U this is the source of New ITTSB test bed, but this it did not designed to work exclusively as stand alone.

Gentlemen  8) with huge pride I am presenting pictures of what a real professional brush this can do regarding scuff marks removal.
This is 120 Grit and I am after classic aluminum surface ( clean - But not polished to mirror finish ).

This is my Before / After test, and the outcome this is amazing.    ;D

I love this old black decker drill, real monster an undying power drill
