Thanks for tidying up my confusion ,Tony .

Sometimes,often nowadays, I get all messed up in my trying to explain things..

I did use my press drill stand for testing once ,way back, you get fairly good results ,mine is 1.5Hp ,so has a bit of grunt. I made up some dummy loads with home made electric elements from electric heaters , you have to get the resistive loads down to a few Ohms, and watch out ,they get red hot !!!.

There are a few examples on the forum of guys setting up FandP with petrol/Diesel engines, he will have to search .

Ok, Saturday, blowing a gale , fairly chilly ,so I'll hide in the warm workshop all day. Working on my solar controller panel and the new inverter set-up.
