We always have a "spare" power supply from older computers laying around. With the lower end power supplies the powering possibilities are endless. Look at the number of connectors and it has a fan for cooling. Check the power supply for the different voltage outputs and you to will see how you can power an entire layout with only one... I use them not only at work for powering a small anodizing tank but also at home when using adapters I made using "dead" battery packs for un-corded dremel tools. Just let your mind go wild on the possibilities. Also, the computer power supplies are grounded with 3 wire plugs and typically come with outputs in the 5 - 12v range. Hope this helps for future projects. :2t:
