picked this up off a mate the other day as i felt sorry for it, it was covered in crud and hadn't been used for some time.


Just wondering if its worth investing time and money into restoring it? it works fine and i kinda like its retro looks.

It's a DeVilbiss 220 pump. Don't know if parts are still around or not. Good pump, but not a huge maker of air.

Guess it depends on what "worth" means to you. Looks like a fun project to me.

Have you looked for parts if you plan to go that far?

I don't see anything about the motor - does it have a rating tag?

And it looks like it says "made to B.S. 1099" or something - British Standard ?
