Well, I think there just may be a few fellas like me who are at the point where we can see quasi retirement in the distant horizon. My IR 5hp 60 gallon compressor could use a motor and TLC. Probably needs a magnetic starter as I Toasted a switch last summer too. I am considering purchasing a new one. I really enjoy the sand blasting and restoration process and will likely continue to do so with tractors, cars and oddly enough firearms. My plan is to add oven to stable of tools for Powdercoat and Cerakote processes. So my question is for those who may have hit a similar decision, should I go extra mile and buy 80 gallon over 60 and buy pressure oil system over dipper? The prices differ quite a bit. I can can likley swing the Cadillac now, although it will sting, but doubt I can do so after my peak earning years. I have narrowed my choices down to Saylor Beall and Quincy compressors. If if anyone has feedback who has experience with these two specifically, then that would be helpful as well.
