|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. Please keep the good stuff coming,
