If you have a 100 amp service, you still have more power than the generator will produce. If you are lucky you get 90 amps. More than likely you have a 200 amp service. It is time to figure what...

What are you going to insulate the roof and wall steel with? I know Georgia doesn't get the temperature swings like farther north, but it doesn't take much to have the steel sweat.

Looks as though the snow you had, has come this way. About 4" so far, but the weather guessers predict more. I still don't think the ski areas will be open before Christmas.

Did you live on a cattle farm? I think that is for neutering a bull. Depending on the size it could be for a smaller animal. :eek:

The picture shows that it is in the one open space in the machine closet. Where are you going to set it up? Maybe on a shelf above the lathe, and use a step stool to reach it? :devil: :D

The last time I was running a K&T was 54 years ago, and it was old then. Once they found out I could read the charts and run a cutter grinder, I never had to go back to the K&T. :D:devil:
