  • Small Antique Air Compressor

    I'd like to own this, but I can't get over the price.
    It's so small I wonder if it was used in a dental office.
    It might also be a vacuum pump rather than an air compressor, because the tag doesn't say which it is.

    That's sharp but a little pricey for me to.

        Proof of the BIG Bang Theory or Air Compressor Explosion
        by Tom Wesenberg
        If you don't drain your tank, there will be a BIG BANG.
        I posted this several years ago on another site, but there are several new members here. I was in my basement working on the computor when I heard and felt an explosion. I went outside to see what happened, and found my neighbor standing in his driveway looking like he was in a state of shock. He was using his air compressor to blow the...

        by wolfen1176
        Just wondering if anyone might have an original 1934 air cleaner laying around they would be willing to part with.

        Finally Installed It! Vintage Centrifugal Air Cleaner
        by Ayyy
        After many priority shifts and procrastinations, I finally got around to installing the vintage centrifugal air cleaner on my 1930 Model A CCPU.

        What's a vintage centrifugal air cleaner?? This air cleaner was patented in 1922 and it works by centrifugally throwing the particles out of the air stream heading towards the carburetor. It does not use a mesh filter, so there is no restriction...

        Garage question
        by Mickey
        I have a large air tank in my garage and noticed water dripping around the bottom (condensation ). When I took a closer look I noticed a sticker that said to drain it daily. I didn't know that. After all real men don' t read the instructions. Realistically how often should one be drained. Letting all the air out and draining water after every days use seems a bit overkill. I realize that you...

        The heat wave is now upon us. It’s in the mid 60s now. I’ve been working on getting my A/C finished. I actually have had it 95% installed now for several years. But up till now have only used the heater portion of the unit.

        With a couple of road trips coming up this summer, I began working on getting the A/C portion completed. Got everything all wired up, charged the system with R132a....

        Air cleaner- not
        by Poor Boy
        Good morning guys. I came across this device attached to a Model B carburetor. At first I thought it was an air cleaner until I looked closer. It must be some kind of silencer or velocity stack. The inlet is shaped like a Venturi and looks like it might speed up the inlet air. Any experience with something like this or even a good guess. Thanks. Jim. ...

        From Renner's Corners site
        by Mitch
        ALL of the carburetors released by Ford for use on a Model A or B
        had the float bowls EXTERNALLY vented.
        So the use of an air cleaner of any type will negatively affect the air to fuel ratios.
        These carbs were not designed for air cleaner use.
        To allow the use of an air cleaner the bowl vent must be relocated to the INSIDE
        of the carburetor near the choke plate area.
