internet access. I lived for a few years on an off the grid property in
northern California. I had a 2 KW inverter/charger running off of two banks
of two L-16 six volt batteries charged either by an overshot water wheel
using a GM alternator or a 1 cylinder Lister CD series diesel which provided
120 volts AC. I have pictures of both as well as other albums on my Webshots
page here. Some of you may
already have seen my stationary engine albums.
And now to the main reason for this post. I am sure that you all know of
Jay Leno, A comedian and variety show host here in the US and you may know
that he is a major enthusiast of all things mechanical. I discovered last
night that he has a comprehensive web site where he showcases his vast
collection in videos, photos and articles. I am just starting into the
videos as of this post and don't yet know the full scope of the site which
covers cars, motorcycles, aircraft and some stationary equipment of
gasoline, electric and steam power. I was just watching Jays self hosted
video on his 1925 Doble Series E steam car and I knew I had to inform the
group of this site.
I will leave it to you to find the media
that most interests you. The site is well indexed and the different media
types and subjects are easy to find.
I am new to posting so please forgive any breach of etiquette.
