First off, Happy Thanksgiving to all of our American members! My compressor is an oldie but a goody. It's a 1963 Quincy that I bought for 200 bucks off of Craigslist after I saw that the 5 horse electric motor ran great so I took a chance. I should add that I bought a car trailer full of woodworking equipment from this guy at the same time so the money was flowing. Anyways I got it to the shop and wired it up to find that it didn't build pressure over 20 PSI, for 200 bucks I wasn't surprised. So I called in an expert for an evaluation on it to see what it needed and how much it would cost. In the end I was very happy with what he had to say about it. In spite of needing a rebuild on the pump to the tune of $1,400 bucks he considered it to be the "Imperial" of air compressors of its day and to replace it with something comparable today I'd have to spend at least $2400. The tank is in great shape and it came with that blue muffler/silencer which he said was worth a couple of hundred bucks by itself. You can actually stand next to it while it's running and have a conversation quite easily.
