Chris08527;

The 'Rivergate - Bulldog 30' (30 A) is probably one of the best and more than enough current for your needs. Easily able to power 2 Chargers AND a Lathe or Truer at the same time (you DO only have 2 Hands!)

RadioShack has a 25 amp model that sells around $100. It is small and pretty light. You can see it on their website.

I personlly like the Alinco DM-330MV. 35A max output with a meter on the front that will read you the Voltage and Amperage. Adjustable with noise off-set. 35A output in the back, 10A cigarette lighter plug in the front, and two 5A outputs in the front. You can see a pic of it here with more detailed info. Very clean power and is used by ham-radios for this feature. I have never had it get hot on me. http://www.skywavzelectronics.com/alincodm330mv.htm

Rivergate just came out with a power supply that has a variable output on the front.. It is pretty sweet.

So you can use your turbo35's to charge and the front output to run a lathe if u only have one charger...

I have a Rivergate that going to stay at home soon. Won't be taking it to the track any longer after CE introduces their new 25A power supply.

Supposed to be out any day. It is based on the nicely sized series 1223 charger. Look at the specs of the Radio Shack unit for an idea of its sizing; however, the CE unit appears to have significantly upgraded their output connectors.

And there are already custom faceplates to dress it up.

I second the Alinco....when I lived in Japan many racers used them.
