homebuilt air compressor.
made from a discarded piston compressor, some scrap iron,a old tank, new motor & hardware, this compressor is much quieter than some new direct-drive ones. yes its heavy. it was out of service for a year due to a bad pressure switch. finnally located one. (not available at any home imp or farm store) never was painted until now. went with equipment gray. thought about making it a 2 tone tractor like a deere or international. but this gray is darn close to '46 ford-ferguson gray. now i need more air tools. tank itself lifts off so the whole thing doesnt have to be drug out to a low tire.

That's pretty clever. How long does it take to fill the tank?
