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.

DeVilbiss 220

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 ?

Vintage DeVilbiss Compressor - Looking for Model Number

Looking to find the model number for the pictured DeVilbiss air compressor. It is at least 60 to 75 years old.

I've got a tag with the Serial number, but no indication of the actual model number, and we would like to find the parts guide or anything else necessary to refurbish it.

It belonged to my wife's grandfather who used it in his dental lab out of his house in Baltimore in the 50's, 60's, and 70's.

It has a 1/4 HP GE electric motor.

Need to find the compressor belt size and oil type for starters.

Thanks for any help.

Model?

I doubt you'll find anything on the whole machine, but it looks like there should be some info on the tag on the pump - or is that where you got the s/n?
