If I just want to gain experience of these beasts, can I assume one can be
mounted in the back of my 40 foot garage driving a 240v generator, instead
of lugging it to shows in my car, which will not be man enough to carry it?
I can undertake some restoration work if spares are available, and I have a
small lathe if required.
