Isolation transformer frame

I have an isolation transformer I used to use when working on CRTs. It was difficult to move around though, because although despite being about 6 inches cubed, it weighs about 54 pounds.

Recently I decided to build a handle onto it. I ended up building a small aluminum frame that bolted to the transformer using its existing bolt holes, and a top panel to which I mounted a power switch, fuse, indicator light, adjustable voltage knob, output outlet, and a handle. I haven't added a skirt to cover up the exposed tranformer terminals, but it's now easier to use and carry.
