POWER ADVICE ( clueless )

heres my problem :

i want to play f.ex. 2 amps the same time . EASY ???
sure , i did that a lot in the past and i had a custom electronic builded box for it which took care of the grounding problems .
it worked perfect . the box was builded by a friend and dissapeared to a unknown place . the friend is dead ( RIP ) .

if i am splitting now my signal with f.ex a stereo chorus and go f.ex 1st amp vox 2nd amp fender twin i get that big hum noise .
i know its a grounding problem . if i remove the ground of one amps power core its gone , but hey , i hate getting electric shocks by the guitarstrings . so thats no option heh

i talked to mr. fuller ( fulltone boxes ) who gave good advice .
he told me the unit i should get is about 5 bucks .
but hes from the US and he has to deal with 110 V AC 50 HZ.
over here ( germany ) we have 240 V DC 60 HZ . i have RESPECT in fact of electricity ( made my electric shock eperiences already ) .

anyone ive asked around here couldnt help . the best advice ended up to buy a box which was almost like 5000 U$$ ... LOLOL

maybe some of you european guys know how to do it . i miss that possibility a lot .

hit me , thx yall

Hmmmmmm. Maybe you shud try one of them guitar splitter systems like the PCP or the Radial JD. I dont know if they make 'em for europe, though. The Radial isnt that expensive. Gimme a coupla weeks and I'll see if they make units that handle european power requirements. Or just go to their web site, get their email and ask 'em yerself. You can play about 7 amps at the same time with one of these boxes. Good luck, hope that helped.
