I found this 3-12 VDC, 2 amp, 6 way, power supply at Parts Express. I bought the item from Parts Express through Amazon to drastically reduce the shipping cost. It ran $23.49 with standard shipping. It looks like it would be perfect as a power supply for T-Jets and G-Jets. I'm using it as a breakin box and a future power supply for a com lathe, when I get one. Here's the link to Amazon:

In my experience with Hudy lathes you will need a good 4-5 amps. The 2 amps just won't cut it for a lathe. Other than that, the other applications will work just fine. It's probably the same manufacturer and base unit as the brand labeled GJet power supply.

If you wire them in series it will produce 18 volts with those settings, but your amperage will be cut in half, so a no go there.

Good stable amperage (Power) does not come cheap, but is worth the investment as it cuts down on the wear of pickup shoes, motors last longer because they run cooler and it it just a better slotting experience.

Thanks,
Keith
