I am giving it away

posted in: Uncategorized | 21

Am I nuts or what? I am actually giving this 10 horse Curtis D 97 compressor with 3 phase converter away for free.

Sorry you all ready missed it!

On Wednesday December 12 this compressor was loaded on a freight truck in Spokane Washington and sent to Stephen Cox in Stevenville Texas.

Why did I do that; because it made sense to me.

My wife and I have been looking around the 5 acres here and wondering what would happen if we or she had to downsize. I figured out the I have over 5,000 square feet of storage buildings on the property. And every building is jam packed. As far as air compressors go I had the 10 I gave away, a five horse champion, a 20 horse Worthington, a 25 horse Le Roy, and a 30 horse Quincy rotary. All that and I am trying to wind down.

As you know from the site here I sell a book on Amazon on how to build converters, modify transformers, make transformers and all that good stuff. So I figured if instead of selling the compressor on Craigslist for a paltry sum of money, why not get some advertising mileage out of it for the book.

So that is how I ended up giving it to Stephen Cox and his You Tube channel which is here. Stephen Cox

I had originally thought of ChuckE2009 as I had stumble across his channel first. He could not use it at that time and steered me to Stephen.

Will this pay off in the long run? I don’t know about financially, but as for making a person feel good it sure does. I am giving it to a young person who will get a lot of use out of this. These cast iron compressors will go for a long time, maybe his kids will get to use it.

When I first built the compressor up with the converter I was making a show case out of it. I did this by loading the compressor with all the options I would want on one for my own shop. I has dual run capabilities, remote switches with indicator lights, and even a welding plug on the side for powering a three phase welder. And even a fan plug on the back to plug in a cheap window fan to cool the thing in hot weather. Watch the video and see for yourself how it works.

    I just watched Steve’s video on the compressor system you have him. That is awesome! I love his channel and think he was a great choice to receive it. He’ll put it work! I am anxious to see him with it running. Although I did watch your video with it running in your shop.

    I’m going to try to build one myself as soon as I can get my building ready. Thanks again!

    Just watched Steve’s video! Hate that his comments are still disabled. Phase converters are awesome! I may have to buy your book LOL, I have a tricky one, I need to go from 208 single phase 60hz to 400v three phase 50hz.
    One really needs to get ALL information when buying a “good deal” on ebay :p hahaha

    I watch both Steve and Chucke’s channel on YouTube. I hold a Master Electrical license and am familiar with phase converters.
    I bought your book to support you and Steve, and to see what I might have missed.
