I would never turn down a working compressor for $30. You will get lot of good use out of it.

Nice to see you got a good price on that compressor. That knda looks like an old Sanbon Manufacturing compressor. Looking at that brings to mind compressor safety. How many with a compressor check the relief valve? This is an important item on a compressor. It pops and lets air release from the tank in the event that the control switch sticks. I know of compressors of the vintage shown that the control did not shut the machine down and the tank blew up. Luckily no one was close when it happened. What I am getting at is to check the relief valve regularly, drain the condensate out of the tank, and shut the compressor off when not using. Thanks for listening.

Glad you got the compressor and $30 dollars is a steal. Yes to all the above on saftey. Ya know getting your first air compressor is almost as good as when you get your first car or truck. Lol.

he has 2 others that he has picked up. one is a gas powered contractor compressor and the other is a small one like the one i got.
the contractor one needs repowered and the small one works.

well i drained the oil out and i thought about a glass of milk as it drained.

so i guess its a good thing i checked it before i ran it. when i first opened it up about a 1/4 cup of water ran out of it.i picked up a quart of non detergent 30 weight oil for it.
