    I'm looking for some typical watt ratings for power tools. Such as 10 gal air compressor, small 110 welder, drills, grinders, typical lighting, and such.

    Reason being, my new apartment doesn't allow vehicle maintenance. So, I'm regulated to using a storage shed as a garage. Most of the storage sheds around here don't have power, and because of that, I'm trying to figure out what 'size' generator to look for.

    Watt = Amp x Volt

    That said here are afew ratings for some of my tools
    110 Welder = 2300
    SawZall = 750
    4 1/2 Grinder = 750
    1/2 drill = 920
