120volts from Alternator

Used to have an older vehicle with an alternator with an external. It had a kit added to it to allow 120volts for perating power tools. Has anybody seen one or have plans for one using an internally regulated alternator. Would like to make one so that I could use some of my power tools in the field. Have spare alternators to use if I had to.

Thanks
Bill

Re: 120volts from Alternator

That is easy. What you need is an inverter. They range from around 80 bucks to almost 1000, depending how much output you need. You will be able to get away with a lower priced one for most power tools. You need the big ones for things like microwave ovens. Most have a chart telling you which one you need to buy. There is also ones that will not onley give you 120 AC, but also allow you to weld.
