This projects was started by me looking for something to do with an old computer i have that is out dated and virtual useless. I saw a few PSU (power supply unit) to bench top power supplies on youtube and decided that this was a good idea.
A source of power i may need for future projects the deeper i get into electronic prototyping/engineering/fiddling
a gift for my Dad to replace his older louder bench top supply
