Re: Intermatic Speedy Air Compressor

i think the red cord is not the concern... the power strip likely isn't rated for enough amps for that compressor.

Re: Intermatic Speedy Air Compressor

When I tested the compressor I had it plugged up to the power strip but if I were to use it on a regular basis, I would just plug it directly to an outlet. The power strip does have a circuit breaker in it though. Keep in mind also that since this compressor has a fixed hose with a tire inflator tool on it, no quick releases on either end of the hose, I will more than likely only use it sparingly for maintaining tire pressures for now.

that's cool. That 1hp is a good handy size too. years ago i did a lot of painting and body work with one that size.

Right: A 1 hp, 120 volt air compressor motor is right at the max operating level for a 120v 20 amps ckt.

AND why
a 1 HP, 120 volt single phase electric motor is usually rated at approx 16 FLA amps and approx 8 amps at 220v and approx 6 times the running amps (6x16) at start-up so everything is at the critical level when operating a 1 hp air compressor electric motor on a 120 volt, 20 amp circuit and a power strip circuit breaker is usually less than 20 amps and their breaker is kinda wimpy. (AND a 20 amp ckt breaker will nuisance trip with a 16 amp continuous load per their design)

Intermittent use for airing up a tire will be a good thing when on a 120v circuit.

This is why a one hp and larger air compressor electric motor is more user friendly when on a 220 volt ckt.

Re: Intermatic Speedy Air Compressor

Just a heads up notice you need to be aware of that I casually mentioned earlier.

Also the adjustable air regulator on that rig is made into the air manifold and the regulator adjustment is kinda wimpy and has tendency to break. Due to all the air manifold being made together as a unit, when the regulator breaks or fails it will involve a major plumbing overhaul upgrade to get the air compressor operational due to OEM parts NLA or costly and hard to find parts. (the existing air manifold will have to be discarded and all different plumbing resulting in a major operation)

That is why I mentioned previously that I installed and use a downstream air regulator (for use when I want regulated air pressure for a spray gun, etc) and I can just leave my OEM on board compressor vintage wimpy regulator set at max and do not ever change it's setting.

Here is type air filter, regulator with gauge I'm referring to use downstream if you ever need regulated air and not bother your OEM reg setting.
I use a more expensive Devilbiss unit that I can get replacement rebuild kits for but
The cheaper one's like this unit are throw away when they go south but give good service for intermittent duty.

Re: Intermatic Speedy Air Compressor

HobieMarty:

Source for parts for yours if you ever need such.

Some info about your vintage air compressor parts

I got several Sanborn parts from this place in 2012. (Mastertoolrepair.com)

I got some Sanborn parts in 2012 from these people.
You can find some of the old Regulator and few additional parts for yours at Master Tool Repair .com
Yours is a W.R. Brown/Intermatic (BLUE)
Model TC1010 is similar to Sanborn Model 44A100-10

The (RED) air compressors was made by WHITES that looks similiar to yours
To see Regulator parts for your plus few other parts try these model numbers at this link. (review by the pictures)
Air compressor parts link model 104B200, etc
https://mastertoolrepair.com/coleman...5_172_177.html
To get regulator parts for mine which my regulator and air manifold looks like your I used a Sanborn model 64A100-22

Lots of this cross reference info I printed and saved for my use came from the Sanborn air compressor site which I could not even find now days. (maybe you can find it It is called a Sanborn air compressors Model No. CROSS REFERENCE GUIDE.

The air manifold parts I got were very reasonable priced,

Re: Intermatic Speedy Air Compressor

Hey thanks. I haven't messed around with the compressor this weekend, I want to change the oil before I use it again.

Re: Intermatic Speedy Air Compressor

I was helping my Mother clean out my Pawpaw's shop the other day and found the manual for the air compressor. I also found a paint spray gun made by the same company as the air compressor.
The spray gun is still in its original box inside a shipping box, apparently Pawpaw ordered the spray gun and it came in the mail. The UPS label on the box is dated September 6, 1983, my Pawpaw passed away in May of 1984 so, this spray gun was never used. I never knew he had this spray gun and it was kind of hidden behind some tool boxes on a shelf under his work bench. I don't know if I will even use it, but for now, I'm just happy to have found it, and now it is reunited with the compressor. Hope y'all enjoy the pictures.

Re: Intermatic Speedy Air Compressor

Hang onto that comp parts list. the part numbers are still good ones. Keep in mind what I told you earlier about the comp air regulator.

Leave it set at max and leave it be. They will break if you go to cranking it up and down. (and some of the parts are built into the manifold which is expensive and troublesome to replace)

Use a external air regulator if you need regulated air for example for the 40 lb pressure spray gun. That sign on the spray gun speaks the truth.
