    Get what you can find and learn and be happy. We would all like to scrap the Hoover Dam generators.

    The best advice you can get on this forum would be to scrap your roller skates and GET A TRUCK.

    speak to electricians who do lots of commercial installations- the buildings that need 3 phase power etc- thats the best place to look.
