Seems you made a good choice buying those DC motors. They may put out enough voltage to run small electronic devices that have switching power supply front ends, where the DC would work just as well as AC. Good job on the mounting :)

I think you've invented the torch. But seriously, that's great to see. That bulb really drains the engines power when its activated. Cheers, Hugh.

Nice work Chuck!

The engine sure sounds good with a load on it.

Very nice Chuck. The bulb really settles the engine down to a steady tickover. Great to see an engine working for its living.
