We happened upon this 2-cycle electric air compressor used in the 50’s by a gentleman for his custom cabinetry business. it’s been sitting for years, looks all original, but finally works! we know it’s awesome, we just don’t know how awesome….

the motor says:
Wagner electric 65w 1/3hp
1425 rpm 6 amp
model no. b31 46-k29j8

any info u have at all would be most helpful…
