This is the same exact power supply I bought for the M2 6M-1000 that I purchased from Lance. I bought it on eBay for $40 including shipping. It will arrive on Friday. I will post the eBay vendor either good or bad experience after I check it out.
I am hoping to be up and running on JT65A within next two weekends and EME shortly following.
