What a nice surprise
Members might remember that when I recently bought a Makita RTO700CX3 trim router kit from America I ordered a step down transformer from a company here in Australia because we have 240 volts and the router is 110 volts. Well, I've been calling it an "inverter" because at a rating of 3000 watts at a cost of just $85.00, in spite of the add. calling it a transformer I assumed that it had to be an electronic switch mode power supply as similar transformers were around the $250.00 to $300.00 mark.
As soon as I saw the delivery man struggling with a very heavy parcel it was obvious that it was in fact an iron cored transformer, so much better than a switch mode power supply. I weighed it in at 13 Kgms (28.6 lbs). Oh happy days!
