Thread: My new toy.

  1. #1

    My new toy.

    Until today, I was making due with a hand-me-down craftsman compressor that was about 35 years old, missing the handle, leaked air, but worked.

    Well, I went into the local Sears store today, and saw they had 3 compressors that had been "returned" and couldn't be sold as "new". So I bought this one:

    12 Gal, 1HP ... it will handle all the jobs I will need it for. It was easy enough to lift out of the truck by myself, and will work for doing finish work inside a house or in the garage.

    Original price was $199, but I got it for $129 ... just couldn't pass it up

    Congrats, David. That should be a nice step up from the old one, and you got a great price on it, too.

    Good deal David. Congratulations.

    I have an old Sears 2hp. I know I had it 40 years ago. It still works fine. However, I would love to have a new one.

    Enjoy,
