I've heard others telling similar stories, so I hope I am going heavy 
enough.  I have an old ferroresonant transformer for the low voltage 
supply that runs hot anyway, but is capable of at least 50 amps, so it 
should do fine.  My problem with this supply is I ain't no spring 
chicken anymore and this dude is getting heavy!
