While in the midst of organizing the shop, I moved my compressor and realized
how old it is. However, it runs like a champ. It is a bit slow initially to come up to full pressure,
but once there it runs everything I need it for, namely air sanders and nail gun.
This ol’ boy belonged to my husbands father, who if he was still alive today would be 106 years old. Wow !
It has a General Electric 1/2 hp motor on it which is the size dimensionally of todays 3hp motors.
They don’t make them like they used to that’s for sure.
My husband was going to take this to his shop and give me his 2 hp compressor which is an upright.
I am still undecided if I want to part with this one.
I really like the popping and hissing sound this one makes,
what do you think keep or trade ?
