    JOBO Processor care package... Now what?

    Neither RadioShack your Home Depot carry something as high as 150W ugh, stupid power...
    Ok had to order one from china... Hope it gets here before Christmas...

    Not sure I understand the hertz thing, hope mine is ok, I got a 300w one, I wasn't sure if 500w would be "too much" but after purchase, someone explained that doesn't matter... Well hope the 300 is good enough.

    The Motor physically turns when plugged into my normal socket, but obviously very very weak and slow.

    50Hz

    What kind of electronics are at that old processor? I guess(!) none (aside of spark-radiation damping).

    Just saw them... I don't really understand electrical stuff, also the links you sent appear to be opposite what I needed, I need an American male plug and a female euro outlet

    The seond one got a US-inlet and a female plug that could take that Jobo male plug (depending on the diameter of those two holes).
    Though NOT electrically safe! in that case.

    In any case where you should be able to get that german plug in, it will not be safe (to german standard...) as you will be able to still touch those poles when at voltage as there is no rim around that socket.

    EDIT:
    I understand that is typical for US outlets. So no actual problem...

    The links i sent, were for higher wattage at half the price.
    What Jnaian suggested is exactly whats in my second link, though buying on Ebay is always safer then any un recognized (to me) online retailer.

    In both links are Two way transformers UP/DOWN, and the second has an "american" plug on its wire, so you can plug it in here, and has 1 US 110V outlet at the front, and a UNIVERSAL multi socket next to it, which will take pretty much anything (ecxept for GERMAN, which is why they supply the german standard third pole contact adapter with it) in case you want to use it in Germany and maintain the ground.

    AGX - i have never seen the inside of this model, but you might be right about it having a very simple circuit. We can only ask Stone to post a photo of the board if there is one at all.

    We use several 2000W units in house.

    You might want to sell that unit to someone that has 220/50 and get a USA version.
