  • I got this Air Compressor a while back and have been wanting to restore it. I finally finished it and it is ready to go. I also restored the Electric Motor that came with it. You can see that restoration video here: https://www.thclips.net/video/B_1pYccubYg/video.html

    Thank you for watching, I hope you liked the video.

    Equipment I've used in this video or others:
    The camera used in this video is my old Canon Vixia I've had for over 10 years. I recently sold
    some stuff from around the house and used that money to invest in a newer, nicer camera which I did use at the very end of this video for the motion shots/closeups while the compressor was running. It's a good camera and you should check it out. the link is below.

    Bondo - https://amzn.to/2pJBYjO - Not the exact stuff, but as close as I could find on Amazon.

    As soon as you smacked the main shaft with a steel hammer i shut it off. You are nothing more than hammer and chisel mechanic. A real mechanic would have used a brass hammer or a brass punch so you don't distort the steel. If you got it running again consider yourself more lucky than good.

    So this restoration is amazing. But I feel like it would have been truer to original by leaving the old mold marks that were there from casting and not grinding them off

    I'm not questioning the skill.. Clearly this guy's good, but, 1929 but the belt is still intact? Maybe it had been used in recent years but the build was '29. It wasn't specified though.

    Didn't expect Segafredo to build compressors. ;D

    The whole video I did not get what the second big chamber next to the cylinder should be for.
    Is it a bulit in pressure vessel? Seems so, the drain valve(?) says to me.
    And they had no belt cover or pressure switch these days? Crazy world...

    Excellent restoration project, well done... I would consider installing a pressure control valve/switch and mount the unit on a large pig storage tank... Appears to be a very powerful cpmpressor...

  • nineball26



    all you need to do is install a pressure relief pop off valve then a pressure regulator switch.. one is an emergency pop off the other turns off the electric motor at your desired pressure usually around 100psi

    then get like a 20 gallon bottle and you will have shop air on tap whenever you need it, leave it on it will fill automatically

    nice old air compressor last forever
