What kind of compressor do you have in your shop?

I have been using this little 3.3hp Ingersol oilesss compressor for probably 15 years or more. Still using it. Noisy and high rpm but has been beat to hell and keeps on running.

Bought a real nice used Quincy 325 this spring. Getting it set up now.

Ingersol SS3 ,5hp mounted in the truck. various junks in stagnate condition. Air tanks all over. I want a 100 gallon tank and a violent scre compressor to blast my steam whistles. working on this :?

I have a 30 gallon upright Craftsman that my wife used briefly when she was doing upholstery and drapery work. It was fine for P horns and low-volume users, but not much good for M horns.
I found a Campbell-Hausfield 60 gallon rig with a bad motor, stripped everything off of the platform and slaved it to my 30 gallon system, now I can get M5's tuned and singing with no problem. The 60 gallon tank is postioned a couple of feet from where my horn valve is located. Also, I ditched the Graham-White valve in favor of a simple ball valve and that helped, too.
