Found an Emglo Compressor - what should I offer?
I came across a tire shop going out of business - the guy is sort of my neighbor and I know him to talk to him. His dad owns the business, but his son is handling getting everything out of there. (I had stopped in to get a tire mounted and discovered this)

The compressor is an Emglo - pretty sure it is a W5C-80C - 5 hp 2 stage 16.7cfm @100psi. I'm pretty sure it is single phase which is what I need. These are 4 cylinder pumps which I haven't come across before. I'm not sure of the vintage, but it was there to primarily run impact wrenches I think.

What is a fair price for this unit? New it is around $1700 or so. I'm not sure how old it is, nor if this guy bought it second hand - not looking to rip him off, but I don't want to pay much either. Is an offer of $300 too cheap?

I know nothing about the compressor, but the numbers sound like it would work well. I would throw a low bid at him first, you can always go up in price, just not down in price. If he is going out of business he may be willing to get what he can, before the bank takes it.

I'm not sure exactly how much to offer, but if you do go for it, I would see if you can snag the piping they use too. It sure is nice to have multiple outlets.
