I have that one. I've beat the hell out of it. Trying to find the best blades is a pain. I've modded mine a bit but the blades still pop off. Looking forward to the future shop with a industrial size one. For now, it works. I give it a 6.5/10.

So the compressor I got a few weeks ago needs a new pump, I called the most recommended compressor shop in town to see if I could get parts, the guy, Dave told me to send him some pictures of it so he could identify exactly what kind it was, well he called me back and I learned more than I wanted to about old compressors and the companies that went out of business, all I wanted to know was if I could get parts to rebuild it, the short answer is no, but it was nice to talk to someone who knows what their talking about, he told me he could sell me a new Campbell Hausfeld 2 cylinder 2 stage pump for around $500
Thats way more than I can afford, so I looked at H/F and found 2 pumps, both are single stage but the price is much closer to what I could save up in a few months, I read most of the reviews and it seems to sound like a good choice
I want to know uf anyone here has ever bought, or knows of anyone who has bought one and how it worked out, one is a 5 hp and the other is a 3 hp, IF I buy one I think I'll go with the 5 hp, I would much rather have a 2 stage pump but I think a 5 hp single stage would be just fine for what I need it for, it's not like it will be running more than 1 tool at a time like in an industrial shop where several tools could be going at the same time

Anybody have any advice?

I thought abought modifying the crankcase with a set of pistons and cylinders and heads from a model compressor they still sell parts for, but that could cost $300 plus all my time, but its not like my time is valuable right now, but once I get this going and a few other things in my garage I could make some real money, of coarse them my time will be worth much more, right now I have more time than money, once everything is ready to go I hope it's the other way around

Here's the links

"Can't" is a word that means your to lazy to even try.

A good industrial saw shop, can make
good blades in any size/length.

Should be able to adjust the guides and tracking,
so the blade stays on better.

Has anyone used the the 3 speed blower with the heater attachment? I'm curious how hard it blows with heater installed. I was kinda thinking of using it in my food trailer for the winter. I can't even feel the little box type heaters. My exhaust fan sucks out the fryer heat and pretty much most other heat. Although the fryer radiate tons of heat in the summer.
