    FREE AIR COMPRESSOR AND MAKITA 7.25 CIRCLE SAW. FREEE, FREEEE, FREEEE

    FREE AIR COMPRESSOR AND MAKITA 7.25” CIRCLE SAW. FREEE, FREEEE, FREEEE

    ITEM #1

    I have had a Sears (C-H manufactured it) air compressor for many years. It has performed flawlessly . I painted a 4,000 sq. ft. board and bat house, non-stop with it (well I did eat, go to the bathroom and go back to Sears at the end for one more gallon of paint). That was the only large thing I painted with it. In fact I used it for painting only a few times. Even though I drained it every time I used it, I became chicken about the tank being so old.

    Specs:
    20 gallon
    10.7 cu ft/min displacement
    125 PSI
    Delivery is 8.8 SCFM AT 40 psi
    Delivery is 7.4 SCFM AT 90 psi

    I purchased a new air compressor. I stole the motor off of this unit. If anyone wants it, it is free if you pick it up. The twin-cylinder compressor is fine, so are the gauges and other parts. Even the tank looks fine; I just know it is old.

    ITEM #2

    Makita circle saw.
    I doubt if it has two or three hours on it. I have, at least one, after market higher quality carbide blade for the saw.

    Here is the rest of that story: I got kick back several times when using the saw.
    I figured out that I was getting kick back when using a fence on the left side of the saw. The blade is a gillionth of a mm out of line with the base. This caused the saw to pull in tighter to the fence and you guessed it, a bind occurred and kick back resulted. I took the saw to a Makita repair station.

    The saw was sent, the repair station, to Makita. It came back, “Repaired.” However, the saw still would kick back when there was a fence on the left side of the saw. I hung the saw on the wall and it has been hanging there for 2 or 3 years. If you want it, it is yours if you pick it up. I priced mailing it USPS. It was approximately $45.00 to mail it. I figured that was too much for the value of the saw. As I remember the price was $119.95 plus tax when I purchased it.

    Except for the flaw mentioned above, the saw looks and acts like it is new.

    I can take pics if you want them.

    The compressor has been "sold." It sure didn't last long.

    First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.

    I'd love the air compressor, Jim. I can get it on Thursday. Lunch? My treat?
