    Default Portable power

    Hello my fellow Christmas Crazies! I am looking for info regarding a thread with DIY steps on how to build a portable power station. I remember someone had built one on a hand truck with either six or eight, 110 outlets. Does anyone recall this or have the thread?

    Hello again Mike, how are things in New Bern? If it isn't too much trouble, could you send me pix of your creation? My electrician friend can't seem to grasp the concept w/out visual help. Thanx!
