Thanks for the offer Ken.
I really hate to do it. I might be raiding my "house project" funds to buy a new one.
The new wheel and tires,front spioler, I was going to buy is close to the price of the compressor
The money I save doing the mechanical work for me and the girls alone,is well worth it......

Ok did some on line pricing this after noon.
I want to go with a 2 stage compressor.
Harbor Freight has an affordable 2 stage.I am leary for there made in china stuff......
The one I have now is a single stage modle.(Cambell Hausfield)
It took me 12 years to wear it out.
A better "brand" might work also.
I am kinda thinking a 2 stage might be the last one I will ever have to buy.
Looks like Big Red will be sporting "winter trim" the rest of this summer........Oh well.....

we've got an ingersoll-rand two stage 7.5hp compressor here at the shop that we run two presses off of, and all of my air tools. This thing is bullet proof if you ask me.

scored a new compressor last night.....Woo Hoo

Need to get it up and running now.....

Lost some very valuable time with it being down.I was able to do a few thing with out it.
The "Beast" is in the garage now.I will be knocking out some snall projects on her.
Big Red looks like it will just get a really good clean up. Still not shure if she will get her summer trim by the "Nationals".....
