I'm looking to buy a compressor.

5HP or 7.5HP two stage preferred.

I'd settle for old American iron if the price is right (low).

Home Depot has a clearance sale on a 60 gal. compressor for $350 and a 80 gal. two stage for $800.

The Merrimack NH store still had both Sunday.

I test ran this and all seemed fine except the current draw was little high. I installed a new run capacitor. It had a very small fatigue crack and leaked its oil. Ran another test with the new cap and the current draw was good.

We then moved it to its final (?) location, added a magnetic starter, installed the correct air filter, and had it wired up.

While moving we broke the unloader air tube. I fixed that.

The unloader valve started leaking, I fixed that with a new schrader valve.

The HP head cap has a small leak, new o-ring located and waiting to be installed. It's much quieter with the correct filter it could be this leak was there before and I just didn't hear it.

And now the tank check valve stopped working.

I should have left it on the dolly where it was working fine.

Possible future mods: add an inter cooler or after cooler and plumb some real air lines.

I've got to sharpen my air hammer sheet metal cutting bits. You neve know when a Camaro might check into the garage. Smile

Oatey, now it looks like I need a new pressure switch. It seems to be stuck at a 50 PSI differential.
