Use my Central Pneumatic compressor as a boat anchor?

Compressor threw rod. Would it be worth trying to fix?

Don, If it's oil lubed, and you clean out all the oil, probably better value as the boat anchor than trying to fix it. :-) Probably have to put holes in the tank as well.

However, I don't know what Central Pneumatic air compressor yours is, or what you paid for it, so, ultimately, it's your call.

The repair depot charges what... $75 / hour for work plus parts. Bet on at least one hour plus parts and taxes... you can do the math.

Cheers, and thanks for the chuckle.
