Schramm Air Comp
I just bought a 1949 Schramm 105CFM compressor and have it up and running. I sandblasted for about 20 minutes and all looks pretty good. I have considered restoring the body and fram with blast and paint and wonder if I should go after the engine, too. I plan to use this machine every day to run my sand blast and realize it is a bit undersized, but I'm willling to make a go of it.
Is this unit worth a lot of time in paint and restoration? I will do the body and frame for sure, just to look good towed behind my '50 Ford pickup. The engine is in pretty nice shape, but a guy could spend lots of time disassembling and prettying up the individual components, the blocks red, the pumps and such black, the tubing yellow......
My trucks are all in passable condition with decent paint and an occasional scrape or rust spot. The mechanicals are not pretty or painted in any way, just clean.
What do you guys think?
