  • old ingersol rand compressor in poor shape

    I've been wandering around this place for years , and just
    spotted this the other day. Probably to far gone to restore.

    I guess it would vibrate with 50% of the cylinders missing.

    Hi Doc,
    Been a beauty in its day, would love to have heard it pounding away, The electric motor was a nice thing also, very impressive item of engineering, If you could find a sister machine equally as bad & swap bits, would make a nice static display.

      It looks like one of the smaller versions, maybe 50HP or so. In addition to lacking what is probably the HP cylinder it is also missing the intercooler and associated piping.

        If you get the data plate model and type number and do a web search you might be suprised to see how many aftermarket companies still sell parts for those.
        There is an old commercial laundry near here that has two Westinghouse units similar to that,also a Garner-Denver steam recepricating unit still in service.
        I just need one more tool,just one!
