View Full Version : It followed me home

I was over at the tool dealers on Saturday collecting a very nice 3' by 2' surface plate and I also brought home this orphan.


A nice old Hydrovane compressor.

I was hoping to dig out the 'Y' point and reconfigure it for 240Vac, but it's already in Delta. If I'm lucky, I'll be able to rewire the field coils in parallel. If not I'll be looking to adapt on another motor.

You may need to replace the felt filter pads in the top cylinder, they are used for oil separation and are usually neglected, the mixture of oil and water soon reduces the output.
