Go to amazon.com

look-up 3000 watt step-down convert. If you search at amazon for"220 110 transformer, use page 2 0r 3 of their responses. $ 64.95. If you blow a fuse (by dropping it, just put in a metal screw, instead (he, he)/ Use i in France every summer. If the 220 outlet isn't a 2 prong you can get plug adapters where you are.

All the best

Your Newport 41 wouldn't be named "One Flew Blue" by any chance?
