I am giving it away

posted in: Uncategorized | 2

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.

    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.
