Had a idea the other day (rare occasion) and built somethin I never saw before. It may be pretty common, but not to me. Its a twelve volt generator. used an old 5 horse lawn mower motor and a GM alternator, works great and now I can charge a battery quick with no takin it out of the vehicle or dragin extension cords. Amazin what happens when you aint lookin at a computer.

Hi Joe.
I'd like a copy of your idea for a generator.
I was thinking of taking a 12 volt alt and a 120 volt convertor to make a generator for my camper.
I have a old 5hp tiller motor.

Now if you add some diods,a large compasitor,and a couple of twelve volt batterys you would have a nice portable welder. :-)

Larry how hard would it be to do what you are talkin about, the welder? and would it put out enough power to weld anything very heavy. You got my ming to going. think I smell smoke.

I don't remember how it all went together. I just remember reading a artical about one some where. I think it might have been in Mother Earth News. That or maybe Farm Show.
