Commodore power supplies upgraded

What looks like an ordinary p.s. ... really upgraded with modern components!
An upgraded p.s. put into a larger casing
The tech from The Other Group of Amigoids can take a Commodore 64 power supply and upgrade it to have the latest, more powerful, and more reliable components.  He goes over to surplus electronics stores, like HSC Electronics and Weird Stuff, and digs through the parts' bins in order to the components he needs. I showed the p.s.'s to Ray Carlsen, C= tech extraordinaire, and he measured the power coming out of them -- very clean 9V AC and very clean 5V DC at about 2.5 volts.
