Just an update on the compressor situation. The brand new Cambell Hastfeild 80 gal, $900 compressor my boss bought broke down after about two hours of use.
We were desperate so we tried putting oil in the porter cable and it runs fine now!
Now he says he will sell it to me for $300! I said I would not pay more than $200 for it. The pumps are not rebuildable and its probably going to die.
He says the GE motor on it is worth $200 alone..
You can't buy stuff from pack rats. Not within reason.
