plum wore the old one out ,
Watch that aluminum tube from the compressor head to the tank. One day it will fracture and scare the snot outta' you.
OOOOOOhhhhhhhh, pretty shiny tools!!!!!!!
i ordered it a month ago --- fast recovery 11.5 cfm at 90 psi , 7 minutes 0-to 155 psi should be good blasting, I had replaced the pump on the old twice,20 years old - motor on its way out now ,
In that first pic I was thinking you were gonna have one hell of an air ride set-up for your Sport-trac .
Time for me to rebuild mine too. Someday.
My compressor is looking at 30 years old and takes forever to recover. That one looks pretty nice I was thinking about a stand up unit for the second one. Would like something that could keep up with a little sand blasting.
Got my Craftsman back in the late '70s and has been rebuilt once...starting to get a knock in it. Yours looks awfully sweet and gets me thinkin'...
WHOA! My dad had the same one. Don't know where it went after he passed away. The one he had still looked like new (back in 2001) and he bought it in 1976. I remember going with him to pick it up from the store.
Boy you got that right it happened at my shop and sounded like a jet, freaked my guys out and when it got down to lower pressure and started the whistle they thought it was an incoming bomb I was laughing my ass off. It upset a few customers and had to sweep up some popcorn in the lobby. Thanks for the memory Hillbilly.
Mines home made
use tank as a pony tank more storage better for blasting
IS THAT A INGERSOLL RAND T-30 COMPRESSOR PUMP
I would keep the old tank and plumb it into your system...will boost up capacity and extend your blasting time. I wish I had a good place to add another tank....maybe the attic...who knows.
