Hi Ray and all,
For inspiration after you've done the gen-set may I offer some photos of early electrical switchgear in a small powerhouse.

The following photos are from the West Coast Heritage Centre in the old School of Mines at Zeehan in Tasmania. They have recreated the steam-driven Zeehan Powerhouse on site using the original steam engine. generator and control panels. The switchgear is mounted on marble slabs as electrical insulation

and a close up of the meters. 

I have some other photos of some of the other stuff mounted (fuses etc) on the marble panels if you need them.

Nice work on your powerhouse. :bow::bow::bow: Please keep the good stuff coming,
