9 amps.

If you rearranged it, you could get 13.

Oh, wait... You meant amperes, not amplifiers.

But if you effectively do that (spreading stuff out across the stage so nobody can see that mess in one place) it's OK, right?

This is a part of a much larger desplay of antique not to code fixtures, sockets, switches and outlets.  I use 11 watt sign lights to keep the current and total power down.  It is all on a trailer and I take it to old engine shows along with a old start and stop on demand Kohler generator. Also not to code.

Yeah, have seen the picture on the site before, just thought I would show what someone else had done but with modern lamps, just don't use high wattage incandescents (i.e. 60/100w or even 40w would be way too much for most fittings), I don't thing the lighting circuit or human eyes could handle itr.

Often someone will show a lot of interest in the display, and explain that they are a electrician I always tell them that as a trained professional, for there own mental health,  they should not look directly at the display.

I have an old Delco home generator system from the same era that has auto start so you don't run down the storage batteries. The Delco's were a 32 volt DC systems and were available in different sizes. I have a couple 32 volt motors, a toaster, cloths iron and some light bulbs to go with it.

Wow, that must attract some attention.  I have seen a number of Delcos at shows, but just one 32 volt motor. Never a toaster or Iron.  Maybe some day we can set up next to each other.  I do have some film strips made for Delco dealers on how to sell them.
