    Dive tank compressor

    Anybody have one they would like to sell? I would like one for remote use. Petrol or 240V but would prefer petrol.

    cheers

    I am sure that there is absolutely no need to tell you this R93 (but out of an abundance of caution) when you get one and use it, please make sure that the air intake is well separated from (and up wind of) the exhaust.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Hi Rushy, appreciate your concern I have used one that now after yrs of service needs replacing.
    Last time I used it, oil started spitting out everywhere. I think it's given up the ghost and filters are too hard to get for it anyway.

    My one is stuffed as well. 1000psi is as high as it will compress... But got my $200 worth out of it before it crapped out. Can still run the kids paintball guns off it though, thats something.

    R93, You may find it just needs compression rings in the last stage. Unfortunatly my 1960`s English compressor dosn`t have compression rings so unless I can find someone prepared do fit a set and grove the piston its pretty well over for it.

    Try an outfit called Ash Air I think they have a branch in Nelson.

    You could be right mate. But it is pretty old and is very hard to get the charcoal filters for.
    I would feel safer using a newer one anyway.
    Thanks for the heads up on Ash air I'll give them a call.

    You can re fit any of the new filter assembly's if that is the only thing wrong if you feel comfortable doing it.like any thing with high pressure lines and swagelok it will cost $$. if you are going to buy a new one stick with the Bauer compressors, I have had a good run out of mine.most others like coltri and a few others in the 3 -5cfm dont seem to last.there are many compressor gurus on the deco stop if you need more info.

    Just curious, since you fill your own bottles do you ever bother getting them tested?

    My mate is looking to sell his Bauer compressor but it's three phase and is way up here in the far north.

    Not religious on the visuals but get the hydros and service my regs at the same time biannually.
