Fantastic video!  I had an immediate flashback to when I worked at an old power plant for 22 years.  Complete with open "knife switches", long handled switch levers with the actual switch behind the panel..... MG (motor/generator) sets, brass gauges, rheostats, externally mounted, large round meters and large strip charts.  It was all there!

No doubt this will bring back the nightmares!

Thanks for sharing.

Quite the ozone generator, i'll bet.  I'd like to see the schematic!

For all that steampunk horsepower, SAQ doesn't get out very well. Very few American stations pick up its semiannual tests.  Even southern Europeans have trouble.

WOW, Kind of makes the FTDX9000 or IC7800 look like a throw away toy you would find in a Cracker Jax box.
