I have leads on getting my mitts on an old style 24v 20A charger... look...

The ones that had pots were mostly driving games or paddle games . And there were a few roller ball games like Ce...

Nope, I haven't seen the Lorax.. I don't even know what that is... I don't have cable tv either.. I don't watch it enough to justify the high cost.
