Yep you suck! I would plumb it in as a back up or extra cfm if you have the space for it. Then in 10 years or so you can pass it on to the yungun. OR if you are in need of some cash, i'd convert it and sell it.

You would really suck if you got it free and actually wanted and needed that thing! How much air do you need? But then on the other hand you got it if you need it! Still suck!

This is a link to my original big compressor thread several years ago. This one was a bit bigger of a project to get going, and really gave me an education on assembly and connection of the things. http://shopfloortalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=13394 As a result, though, i don't really need any more air, as it keeps up with my highest draw equipment just fine (sandblaster).

As far as selling it, I don't really need the money. It doesn't pay to convert it and sell it ($200 motor, and relaistic price you are going to get for it is $300-$400). I don't, however, relish the loss of shop space. I have 12'x 54' pad next to my ahopthat is for covered parking, but I never finished the covered portion. What I really should do is frame that up and roof it and move both compressors out there. That frees up floor space and makes shop life quieter.
I also found out that I can run this compressor on 3hp at 400rpm, or a 5hp at 800rpm, of course with the loss of volume at the lower end. Interestingly, it is cheaper o find a used 7.5hp motor than a 5 or 3. So I may just keep my eyes peeled for that size instead.

Yeah, that would be easy to transport on the Staten Island Ferry, and the train!

Offer it as is for $400-$500.
Hell, the pump should be worth $200-$300 by itself.

and, yeah ...
