Default Hello all-

New here - arrived looking for a manual for a compressor - I am pretty much a novice, trying to build a workshop = I am restoring a number of 'vintage' craftsman tools and am looking at an older sears compressor on craigslist - want to check the specs before buying. I have signed up for several forum sites in hopes of garnering help when needed as I try and improve my skills. Thanks in advance to everyone!

You might be able to Google it. The next best bet is to compare size of head and motor HP to something newer tthat you can get specs for. Wouldn't be exact but it would put you in the ballpark.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Thanks - that is more or less where I ended up - was able to download a manual for a similar. The one I was looking at is by campbell hausfeld rather than ingersoll rand, which made the majority of the sears compressors at that point in time.

Hi, Chip; welcome! Funny that you should mention Campbell Hausfeld...I'm having 'issues' with my 30yr. old 2HP/115/220V model. The decision is whether to plough money into redoing the controls or scrap it and buy a new one. No way am I going to buy someone else's problem m/c!

I guess it would depend on the condition of everything else - the one I have has had the rings replaced already, and the tank is in good shape.
