I was just about to post the same question, but found your post.

I am looking for one, too. Preferably up to 25vdc.

Personally, I just use an adjustable DC wall wart. Then I have a vero-board supply filter with my in and out jacks built on to it (that way I don't have to wire up ground for the jacks every time). It is basically this:

If you are looking for more control (the kind of stuff a proper bench power supply provides) then you will probably just have to bite the bullet and buy one

I've got a professional lab supply that somebody left on the street! I think mine's 30 volts at 5 amps, which is far more than you'll ever need.
