I have finally compiled a list of the bits required to make either a Variac/Inverter or a pretty "grunty" Inverter

Both Units can be run from 24V to 60V, with a suitable primary winding on the Toroid.

2.5KW Variac/Auxiliary inverter

WG40 Rev1: x 1  8 x Mosfet Power PCB..................100 x 100......$2
WG41 Rev1: x 1  Opto + Gate-drive + Cap PCB......100 x 100......$2
WG44 Rev2: x 1  Nano Serial to 40 x 2 LCD...........49.5 x 33........$0.5
WG45 Rev1: x 1  Variac Nano Controller PCB..........100 x 100.....$2

6kW Inverter (Note easily handles peaks over 15kW)

WG06 Rev1: x 2  4 x Bulk Cap PCB for WG30........100 x 100......$2
WG30 Rev1: x 1  16 x Mosfet Power PCB 2oz........260 x 108......$10
WG39 Rev6: x 1  Inverter Nano Controller...............100 x 100......$2
WG44 Rev2: x 1  Nano Serial to 40 x 2 LCD...........49.5 x 33.......$0.5

The pricing is budgetary and no freight is included, when all the quantities are ordered and final freight is known it will be divided down proportionally + local delivery.
I expect Local delivery to be ~ $7 max.  As said before I will include a free 160A current sense transformer (new) for each Inverter or Variac controller ordered.
So budget for a max of $6.50 for the Variac and $14.50 for the inverter.

The Controllers can both drive the smaller power board or the larger board, plugs have same pinout.

The manufacture of the new Variac boards revision update are at 93% completion so will be winging their way back very soon.
