Bought this compressor at an estate sale recently. By the tag mounted on the tank, it’s made by the Curtis MFG. CO., St. Louis. I took a rubbing, because a photo wouldn’t show up. Built 1969, DIV.1, Serial #175478, Max WP 200 psi, Max Temp 400, NAIL BD No.139229, S.H. 165 HDS 142 R.H./ ELL.

The tag also has a capital “W” and a capital “U” inside a box stamped on it. I’ve tried all the numbers in a search to no avail.

The pump’s #’s are self explanatory………to someone who knows what they mean. I also googled all the numbers and no luck.

Not much going on with older stuff on the interwebs…

If you haven’t already, best bet is look for Curtis history.

Sometimes you can tell something from old catalogs and data sheets, which aren’t usually indexed by the search engines.
