air compressor update

For anyone wondering what happened to the air compressor with the hole in the tank...

My super amazing wonderful brilliant neighbor took it for the weekend and had a look at it. He determined that the tank is in rather bad shape, probably from having sat with a rather large quantity of water and crap in the tank before I acquired it. The metal was too thin and rusted to have a screw threaded into it (what the company recommended as a patch). So it has a temporary patch but ultimately is going to need a new tank.

I was afraid of that...

These little tiny quiet compressors and their little tiny parts are not cheap!
