The "Heeresfliegerstaffel Fritzlar" nearby throw their old compressor away - and I catched it. Volume is ~ 200 barrel

Very nice. That looks like what mine did when I first got it. My tank was from 1968

No prob, my brother is an electrician :dancingbanana: My idea is, to put it on a chassis so that different persons can use the compressor for sand blasting, paint spraying a.s.o :bounce:

Do you have 3-phase electric in your shop? I'll bet the motor is 3PH.. Other than that it is a sweeeeeet hunk of machinery!

Sure, most people in germany, especially when they have a rural background, have 380 V / 3ph at home (normally we have 220 V / 1 ph). Maybe next time they throw away a electric generator - guess who'll catch it :rolling: :rocker2:

I think Most all of Europe has 220 standard. I know when we lived in Spain that was the Standard.
