So there can't be any huge difference between the several models.

120V versus 230V should be a clear difference. I'm thinking most work has used 120V jobs, but some report 230V lumps.

Basically we are using a $300 part for a $30 chore, BUT these over-size parts are cheap or free, so we use a 1KVA part for a 20 Watt job.

Based on that you need a choke of around 6 - 7 mH, but with very low DCR, eg. 0.1 ohm would be good, lower even better.
Not sure how possible it is to find such a choke that can also handle the current of the MoFo.

Better approach IMHO would be to use whatever high current, low DCR choke you can find and then fit a cap that sets the HP point, in series with the positive input of the driver.
Calculate the value of the cap as for a 2nd order HPF.
