Finding replacements for the compressor tank support feet

by Herman Streetman

I have an 80 gal vertical air tank with bent feet and would like to know where to purchase replacement feet. I have an ASME certified welder to do the repair. I have searched the internet with no success. Thanks for any help.

Replacement feet
by: Herman

The tank was manufactured in 2007 an used in a cabinet shop. I bought it this way and believe it was dropped while being moved. The tank looks new and I inspected the inside with an inspection camera and saw very little rust.

I may have to fabricate the legs but wanted to replace with what is on there now if possible.

Thanks,
Herman

Tank feet

I'd be surprised if there were any source for something like this, Herman.

My suggestion is to purchase a length of 3/4" wide x 1/8 thick mild steel from a building supply center, and get your welding guy to bend them to suit.

If the feet are bent are they badly corroded too? If so, how old is the tank? Time to consider a new one?
