10/10 for Isco in providing useful information. Now all I need is the power supply to go with it!

Yes, kudos to Isco. They guy said it was "refreshing" to find someone who knew what vacuum tubes are, and was happy to help.

They are fairly cheap here. I know a guy with a pile of them. Probably get it for ~$50, but it will cost $85 to ship it across the pond. Then you have to convert it to 220/240, but that is documented in the .pdf

My word, that's substantial (but not wholly impractical). Actually, what I really meant was rough dimensions H x W x D. Inches or mm are fine.

About 12"x7"x14", WxHxD. The weight is shipping weight.

Looks like to convert to Eurovolts, you need to replace a circuit breaker, and rewire the xformer. No biggie.
