a friend, who also builds cabinets for a living, has generously offered to give me his old IR vertical compressor. It is a 3hp 60 gallon unit. he bought it used for 300 bucks, used it for a year and no the head is going bad, he has since bought a nice new 2 stage quincy comp. before buying the new compressor he checked into buying the new head from grainger and they qouted him 310 bucks.
so basically I would have a pretty decent comp for about 310 bucks.
is it worth it or should I just thank him and decline the offer.
ps. due to my small need for air (nails guns basically) I am still using multiple pancake comp at this time.
