Wondering what compressor I have: Blue, Flywheel, Filter on Top Middle...


Can anyone tell me its year, brand, and possible resale value? I was only able to get a few shots, not inspect for serial ID, but its name badge is worn and illegible.

The building has been sold and this was in a corner. It's not seized. I have only a few hours left in which to identify it before it heads to scrap heaven. I can't take it out of the building without buying or selling it.

Many thanks for any help anyone could provide.

The Final Solution
by: Lorra

First of all, thanks to Doug, Roger and Bill for all the help.

Second of all, Doug, I do believe that use of puns on this site result in immediate banishment (unless I read the "bye" laws incorrectly).

Third of three: I was researching this for a friend, who gave the compressor to another friend, but who needed the ID for a rebuild kit. Now this disco-era beast will stay alive and boogie again : )

Kellogg - Lorra

Good serial joke.

Thank you, and you're welcome, of course.

Did you decide what to do?

Yes, this is an old Kellogg, maybe a 321.

Resale compressor?
by: Doug in s.d.ca

If you aren't actually interested in it, probably let it go.

OTOH, if the reel comes with it, and that works, maybe 25 bucks or so just for that, and look into the pump when time permits.

...there are people who come around from time to time and can ID many pumps, but I'm not one of them.Sorry I'm not more help.

I have shots of the flywheel and others.

No Tags on the Beast
by: Lorra

Yeah, we found no tags at all. I was thinking it might be a Kellogg single, but maybe that's just because I'm hankering for cereal.

I don't even see a tag, but sometimes a little CLR will clean it up...
