    Watch that aluminum tube from the compressor head to the tank. One day it will fracture and scare the snot outta' you.

    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 ,

    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.

    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.

    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.
