Re: Air compressor woes

I have a Jacuzzi compressor that I bought used in the mid '70s. It's one that runs constantly if it has electrical power. I think the device that stops compression is called a constant speed unloader. It came with about a 5 gallon tank and I now have it on a 60 gallon tank. In the old days, the service stations used a very small single cylinder compressor for a very large tank to operate their car lifts. Duty cycle is the key.
"For that day a large wisdom came to me. There was a great light, and I saw clear, and I knew that it was not for money that a man must live, but for a happiness that no man can give, or buy, or sell, and that is beyond all value of all money in the world." Sitka Charlie, Eskimo.
