Too late now, but here's my response from the other thread you asked in...
The Spellman is a much better power supply. M NEWMAN used to call them Spellmans and junk. If I were to buy one, $100 would make me get the Spellman. The 1st thing I did with any PS was to pull the cover and go over every solder joint in the non potted part of the supply.
For $400-500 in the states you could buy another ECP and rob parts, but I assume the pricing you show is normal for where you're at?
