    Thanks guys for your pointers...unfortunately these links I've already found. They're all to do with the small "cube" generators that seem to be everywhere - this is the big brother/cousin of it as a 2KVA power-source. The main body of the generator with the end casting attached I can just about lift solo....that's a totally empty casing. Fully assembled it's a two man struggle...or a four man comfortable lift - it's the main reason I didn't pass this one by......it's undoubtedly WWII German.......but a rare beast. The engine is a 125CC engine I believe Datrus. If you can find even the smallest picture of one in service.....or find a link to one somewhere..........i'd be extremely grateful for it.

    Didn't achieve much today (life gets in the way of hobbies occasionally), but did manage to get the primary fan bead-blasted......along with the front casing.........and electrical console housing. The last item I think was held together by paint. As it was being blasted, one of the spot-welded seams popped open......so that's something I have to arrange to get done, FIRST......I have to find somebody with spot-welding equipment!German generator-img_9445.jpg[ATTACH=CONFIG]

    Theo........GREAT stuff.......helping me track it down now. MY Generator is an EL201 (OK..the list says it was made until 1941....and mine is '42) but it's a start. The manufacturer of mine is STILL in Hamburg, the motor is DKW/Auto-Union Chemnitz, and it's a 125CC single cylinder engine.
    Much appreciated Theo

    any luck?............I'm coming up with NOTHING! You would think that there'd be ONE bloody photograph on the net with one of these generators in it wouldn't you?

    I have been looking literally for hours. Also on Danish web sites. I have tried to type in "DKW type BL201" and came up with this site Alle DKW Modelle 1922 - 1958 At least they seem to know something about DKW models and so on. I have tried many other combinations. You have a rare generator my friend, or we do not have right info to search on. I have also tried to "invent" my own models. The small one is a KL100, and then i tried KL125. Nothing... I have tried a lot of strange combinations. I do recognize the company STILL which is mentioned on one of the plates. They produce equipment of all sorts. Maybe they know what they did in 1942? STILL Germany:*forklift trucks, warehouse handling equipment, intralogistics

    This is the best i can do. Write to STILL. I think this is your best chance my friend.

    Well.......all the Danish sites I typed "generator" into turned out to be porn sites, and while I HAVE already contacted STILL.............still(excuse the play on words)..nothing. I'll keep searching and keep plugging away. The generator is 95% complete........so I'lll finish it off and maybe add the finishing touches AS and WHEN I get them.
    THANKS for your effort.......I do appreciate it,

    Mike

    Started the rebuild today. Despite re-finishing it in the colours it originally was (IE front motor-casing in LuftBlau....and the rest in Ordinance tan)......I think the combination looks crap. Opinions.........should I just paint the whole thing in ordinance tan........or keep is as originally it was painted?
