To kick things off a bit,...
I bought this compressor for painting, running air hammers, air rachets and was thinking of using it for sand blasting.
Named ''OBNOXIOUS'' for very good reasons.
The company PK Lindsay "Give them Air" built compressors and sand blasting equipments of various sizes. This compressor, electric start model HUE 25, was repainted yellow and used to blow up above ground pools, powered by a Wisconsin S12D engine direct coupled to the single stage cast iron V-twin cylinder compressor for 25 CFM continually through a 3/8 hose at 125 PSI, 30 CFM through 1/4 hose at 95 PSI or so.
Great for filling farm tractor tires in half the time it would take my Emglo wheelbarrow compressor to and was hard on it anyways.
The engine and compressor crankcases are shared, the compressor uses automotive exhaust valves, poppet intake valves, head mounted manual unloader with tank mounted pilot valve all mounted on heavy gauge well casing type steel tanks.
Have been thinking about selling off the engine on and off thruout the years for compressor and/or GT parts and remounted a diesel powered set up on the tanks. Was truck mounted on leaf springs but i converted it to portable with folding handles.
EDIT : Computer connection is very bad today, had to edit several times, will be back in a while.
