I have just acquired a Stuart-Turner mains genny set via eBay, item300158698930. I have been looking for a classic 240V generator for some time and this was local and really fits the bill - it is my first stationary engine, though my workshop is mainly 1930 to 1950s machine tools so its fits in nicely. However I am curious to find out its age, the model, and what goes on inside (as it works perfectly, and I have other projects on the go, I am not inclined to take it apart).
There is no plate on the engine, and the generator isn't dated but must be post war from its design - so I expect its a 1950s unit - but I would be really pleased if anyone can identify it. There is a plate on the magneto that I haven't studied yet if this can be used to give a clue. I assume its not a rare unit as only two people bid for it.

Anyone out there know Stuart's well and can tell me what it is ?
