awalker19. My brother used an old 5hp briggs mounted to a board. the other end of the board had a car alternator mounted on a pivot with a heavy spring. You have to have a 12v battery to "energize" the alternator windings. once it's charging it'll put out what it needs to depending on load. This can be built for cheap and all you need to add is a small 400w - 1500w ac inverter. to run epuipment/tools.
