I hope that you're posting tongue in cheek, Ed. That ain't no household
refrigerator compressor and, even if it was, it would have something
heavier than zip cord.
Who knows what sized motor it had on it when it WAS used as a
refrigerator (probably a large store unit) but even the motor on it now
is likely to require a 14 or 12 ga electrical cord.
More power if the guy gets his $75 but then there IS a sucker born every
Back in the late fifties, a neighborhood kid made a compressor out of an ol
d refrigerator and a tank. He primarily used to spray his auto engine with
Lestoil - and then hose it down. Many of the neighborhood youngsters clean
their motors. It left everything spotless.
My brother took his TR-2 in for work, and the mechanic was amazed. He'd nev
er seen an engine so clean.
So, if you have an old TR-2, think about buying this .....
My dad had one of these types although it was just a motor, compressor
and a tank. Used it for years in his workshop. Moved it to all over
the community in AL we lived in and it made moves to CA and NM.
I trashed it when he died in 1998 because I didn't trust the tank and
I had a better compressor of my own.
