Just be careful if you do any painting in there. After a bit, the cd/dvd player will not work.

Looks good. I need to paint my living room before I could even think of touching the garage, or I would need to build my room out there!

, Thanks. I had to do some "chores" around the house before I could start this project. My girl friend was just happy that I said she could paint the rest of the house any color she wants. Now that I think of it, that may have been a bad trade off.

I think I might like to see the house after its repainted.

Well I didn't like the peg board layout so I changed it up a little.




*I'm in the middle of several projects right now, so some tools were being used and are not up on the wall. Normally there isn't empty spots.

Well picked up another project that will look great in my Garage. Had a small electrical fire in the motor on the compressor at work. They got quoted to high to fix it so they decided to buy a new one that's bigger. Since they were just going to scrap it, they said I could take it. Plans are to clean it up and paint it, rebuild the pump, and buy a new 220v single phase motor for it, and put all new lines, pressure switch, control panel, etc on it. It is an 80 gallon.

Well, I started tearing into the Compressor Pump.



Gardner Denver-





After draining the oil, I pulled the inspection cover off.





Looked pretty clean inside, even though it was very low on oil.

Next was the head and cylinders. Head looks to be in good shape, but the cylinders could use a good clean up.









Now that I've got the pump apart, I am amazed this thing never self destructed. The connecting rods are very loose and sloppy, and I can make the thing "knock" just wiggling the connecting rods with my hands

Fortunately a long time family friend is in the compressor industry and is looking to see what parts he can get me for it. I'm not dead set on fixing this one, but I would like to keep it for the vintage look it holds. Should look good all cleaned up with fresh paint.

Right now the compressor is simmering on the back burner with other projects taking up my time and money. I'll keep you in mind though, when I get back to it.

Alright, time for an update. I ended up giving the Compressor to my Dad, he needed another project more than I did. I picked up a 32 gallon compressor pretty cheap and I didn't have to do any work to it.

And as some of you may have expected, I reworked the work bench for something that took up less space. Just finished painting it, white on the bottom and gray on the work surface. I was pretty happy that I was able to reuse the wood from the old bench, and still have some left over for shelves and things.





When the paint dries I can reorganize and move onto the other work bench that's in need of paint.

Thanks. I'll build a barn in the back before I get that involved in this garage.
