    Motor is a wagner. Looks like repulsion start, induction run. Heavy. Tank is dated 1938, I assume the other components are near that date.

    Sorry for the threadjack.

    Edit: "By 1924, the company had expanded its line beyond its original products, vacuum pumps designed for milking cows" Hmm. The boot does fit. It has quincy compressor co plastered all over it, so it's gotta be post 1924.
    Kinda figured it was from the 20"s or a bit earlier. Stuff from the 40's is over built, but that compressor looks like it would survive a nuclear blast
    I just need one more tool,just one!
