How about a PC power supply?
I can't imagine anything cheaper (they are cheaper than cinder blocks for
building shelves)

They put out 5V and 12V, and should be accurate enopugh on the voltages.

You might need a load for it to work - an old automotive headlight will
work (get your local wrench to save you one with one burned out filament
and use the other filament)
