It might be Broken, but it looks very tidy!

I got an Air Wing portable air compressor like this which will be pretty handy!

Looks similar to this. It has a rechargeable lithium battery and various other accessories.

Hmm, interesting. How much boost does it produce?

That's a 377000 K example and it was very untidy. Typical rough Diamond, beneath all the chaos there lay some beauty.

The wheels I've added. Told the Mrs my junk pile would come in handy

It doesn't say on the box. Can't find the same one on line but this is extremely similar and about the same price Trish paid I think ($80, not $1!). You can set the pressure you want and it stops when you get there.  :goodjob:

There's one like that n those TV ads.
I have one which powers off the car battery, twin piston model which Cooper Tires used as a giveaway years ago. It's great but I'm lazy. Hooking it up to the battery is a PITA.  :crazy1:
But I can't justify the outlay when the one I have works fine. :disapp:

Yeah, I'd be the same Trev. I'm glad Trish got the recharable one which is probably $30 dearer than the wired one. Mine is both. I wouldn't have bought another if I already had a wired one though.
