Shelf life of air pump to build my own compressor?
(Toronto, Ontario, Canada)
Great site. A lot of to read and learn.
Friend of mine has an air pump. He got it at one garage sale. He said it is brand new. Never used.
I would like to use it to assemble a compressor. But, I am afraid that after who knows how many years some of the internal parts are rusty and there will be a problem to run it. Am I looking for trouble? Any idea what to do before first run?
I found locally a 60g compressor tank with motor, but without pump. So, I thought this is good opportunity to match them. Is it good idea to save some money.
