Cromenco Z2 power supply (or equivalent)

Hi Sergio:

I've got one too, from a Z-2 I scrapped some time ago, but unfortunately
I'm in Canada, so shipping would be just as problematic as for Joe in FL.
I assume you need the whole back panel (31x43x13 cm,10kg) since all the parts
are discrete and mounted on it. If you want to construct one, maybe it
would be practical to send you the parts, especially the transformer;
the diodes and caps (130,000 and 29,000 mf, x2) you could probably obtain
there. Voltages are +/-18V and +8V (No -8V), but I can't find any mention
of the current rating (but it's adequate for light arc-welding, I'm sure).
If you like, I can scan and e-mail you the schematic.

By the way, congratulations on your countryman winning the Hungarian
GP and setting several new records in the process; quite an achievement!

   I think I have one but I'm in Florida and I expect that the shipping
would be EXPENSIVE.
