Default LOL at guy who bought my dead compressor

Sold an old Craftsman compressor last week, pump had blown up years ago, one of the oilless ones. Sold it for $50, was surprised I got that much.


Now he has it on C-list, minus the motor and pressure switch, for $175.

Not angry at all- but I find it hard to believe anyone will pay $175 for an air bottle.

I'd give 50 for it and use it as a secondary air storage tank on my current 60

That's pretty much all it's good for.

Gave the guy that bought it a box with all the blowed up pump parts too.

I'm sorta interested to see if it sells. Maybe someone here could call him and lowball him at $40 just for gits n shiggles.

I rebuilt it twice. They don't like running D/A sanders much.

Got a Quincy now. Similar to this one:



25 SCFM @ 150 PSI. I regulate it to 100PSI and I never run out of air.

What did you give for that Quincy out of curiosity? I've been looking at them (used) and can't decide if I want to go rotary or not.

I bought it about 10 years ago for $125, the guy I got it from got it at an auction of a body shop that went under. Had a 3 phase 5hp motor, I just waited until I could get a single phase motor for what I wanted to pay.

They are very heavy duty, known to last practically forever with just basic maintenance. you rarely see the recip models under a grand.

Rotary screw would be badass- but you really need 3 phase for them.

You want a compressor that will put out approximately 25% more air than you will actually need. Second requirement is to have a dual stage piston pumper. Too easy to overheat diaphragm air stuffers, and rip them so they don't build . I bought an IR 220V dual stage compressor for $273, marked incorrectly. They do that often, that's how I got my drill press too.
