Baker-hansen air compressor question

Sorry if this isn't the place for this...

I am a sucker when it comes to old stuff...especially when its cool.
I found an old huge air compressor while I was looking to replace my recently broken china POS.

I found an old Baker-Hansen Mfg 220 vlt 2 stage...non origonal electric motor but who cares. It runs, holds pressure etc..and it looks sick.




Anyone know anything about this company? I know they used to be based out of Alameda way back when... But I'd like to know what CFM it is with out doing math so I can plum the correct size lines and all...

If anyone has any info on it I'd really appreciate it.

That thing does look cool. Only problem with that is I would want it out front where everyone can see it instead of hidden in the back like normally, lol

It will have a place against the back wall, dead center, so when you open the garage door, you see it. I am debating taking it all apart and powder coating it...with the rivets their own color...

A feller might plug all the threaded ports and air it up for a pressure check,...With all those rivets, there might be a good reason it's not being used anymore. Pissssssssssssssssssssssssss. Air pump can't keep up with the leaks.

Cool tho,....if you can't use it for a air compressor you could hack a hole in the top and use it for a antique kyack (sp)...look like the titanic going by.

Due to the fact it has a riveted tank (meaning it's old as the hills). I would be looking to see if it has any markings stamped on the tank showing it has been water pressure checked. If not then I would use caution as to how high air pressure was pumped. Some states require that tanks of certain size/age be checked at certain intervals and in some the insurance companies require a check
