Show off your homeade/ancient air compressor/air supply system!

Okay, I'll start...
ancient westinghouse motor
ancient speedaire tank
ancient refridgeration compressor (from an old old grocery store)

it runs really quiet and "slow" but pressurizes tank in about 2-3 minutes so I think the compressor is a fairly large displacement.
80psi max, maybe I'll get into the wires and bump it to 110.

see my photo album for pics, any info on anything is appreciated (who manufactured the pump, how old the stuff is, etc)

Campbell Hausfeld Contractor grade, truck mount. Converted for garage.

10 HP Gas Kohler motor.
Charging system off a cub caddet mower (stator regulator)
Ignition switch of a 1954 dodge meadowbrook.
Replaced magneto with coil ignition.

Runs my san-blast 99 preasure blaster all day with no downtime. Biggest problem is it produces more than I need for most small jobs and is a bit loud.

See it in all it's ugly on my journal.
