I think someone here is interested in small generator sets (perhaps Kim?). A local chap mentioned that he has a small generator set he wants to dispose of. I haven't seen it, but he gave me a brief description.
He describes it as being a "GPO" generator set. I asked him if there was a connection to the Post Office, and he says he thinks there is. He says it generates at about 30 V and weighs about 40 kg. It's powered by a small "gas" engine, although I didn't ask if he meant gasoline or bottled gas. He hasn't had it running.
It's located in Newport, Shropshire. Not sure what he wants for it, but I don't think it'll be a lot.
If you're interested, send me an e-mail (chris AT ruggedmachines DOT com) and I'll give you his name and telephone number.
