Just got the new Circuit Specialists catalog in the mail, and they're running a sale on variacs. There's a 2 amp one for $39 and an 8 amp one for $89. A variac is highly recommended if you're into vintage gear.
Dan, you seem to be missing the core of what people are saying to you. They're not saying to ditch your system, and they're not saying to add a stepped attenuator. They're suggesting you use a rotary encoder, a digital rotary encoder rather than an up/down toggle switch. That's all they're suggesting. A rotary encoder would be more usable.

Another terrible job loss report today. If the recent job loss trend isn't reversed soon, we'll hit 10% national unemployment in just four more months. I'd think long and hard about whether a marketing degree is good preparation for the future.
