So I have a Craftsman 20 gal vertical air compressor that decided to break on me a few months ago. I checked into buying a new oil-less motor for it but honestly it costs about the same as what the compressor was brand new. I was thinking of trying to just remove the motor and make a portable air tank out of it, and just fill it up with a smaller air compressor so I would have a larger quantity of air to use in my garage without spending a lot of money on a larger 60 gal etc..... I dont wanna just throw it out at the dump but its pretty useless as it sits in my garage.
Has anyone ever converted a broken compressor into a air holding tank by removing the motor and plugging it and installing a shrader valve or something?
