Compressor
« on: June 01, 2006, 11:23:49 PM »
Here is a little compressor I picked up.  After a cleanup and a valve job and check out the rings it will be belted to the Listeroid.

Bore and stroke is 3" by 3.5", RPM is stated as at least 300.  Patent date is 1915 so it should fit right in with a Lister type engine.

There is a small two stage horizontal flat belt driven air compressor on Ebay. IIRC the sellers ID is Xtrucker99.

Looks just like a pre-war Devilbiss a friend gave me mounted on a tank.  He used it for 60 years, then gave it to me and I'm continuing to run it.  Thing's really built well.  It runs at 800 rpm and makes a great pop-pop-pop sound.  The equally old electric motor that came with it can run for a half hour or so and not even be warm to the touch.
