Amen re the
Glad you have a sense of humour. You will need it when you come to Chile. And patience. Gawd, will you need patience.
You will know you are settling in when you make an appt for 9 with a neighbour 2 doors away and find yourself there at 10:30.
And I am (was) a freak for punctuality but hey, it's Saturday, they wanted to borrow something, Friday ran late... so WTF.
A friend brought a Kitchenaid mixer from the US. He can start it using his 1000watt 110v transformer but only just.
Mine is 4kw, his mixer starts like back in the US.
I use all my US handtools here without a hitch. A transformer should have enough grunt.
A side note, I recently built an insulated tool shed within my garage to protect my tools from the coastal wet (salty) air.
I moved my transformer inside the enclosure to take advantage of the waste heat.
It works.... on average that little room is 5 degrees warmer than ambient in the am.
Why are you coming to chile?
