    I agree, except the shafts are in different planes. The only way I can think to make this happen is to have multiple large(ish) right angle reference to butt up against the shafts.

    The transformer specs are a bit misleading indeed. I kept looking at the transformer thinking it looked way too small for the given load. I'll send the undersized transformer back to McMaster, so...

    I measured the voltage with a Fluke 87-V. I'm confident with the readings. But a good point, nonetheless.

    I haven't needed to use a buck/boost transformer in the past as all of my other equipment will handle 250VAC input.
