Parts Express 5A Variac Variable AC Power Transformer 0-130 VAC
Will this unit work when plugged into a GFI outlet? Looking for a portable device to dummy voltages on new voltage ciruits to verify wiring.
Hi, would this variac be suitable for connecting to a 4 foot length of ni-chrome wire for use as a heat-generating fixture to bend acrylic sheet?
It is not designed to be used in that capacity.

How would I use this or any of your variac on a tube amp. that's been boxed for several years? (a home power amp). Thanks.
If your goal is to reform the electrolytic capacitors in you amp by supplying an increasing voltage to the amp over some period of time, the variac will work fine, but a low-wattage light bulb in series with the amp will do the job just as well and is a LOT cheaper. Do a google search on reforming electrolytics.

Can I use the 5A Variac Variable AC Power Transformer 0-130 VAC to maintain voltage on a dirty power? I'm a guitar player and would like to maintain the correct power to my amp........ Roy
A power conditioner would be a better option for you. ex: Furman PL-8 Series.
