Default Reavell compressor exhibit

Hello all, what do you think of this compressor for an exhibit? It has a good motion to it and should look good with the two drip oilers.Waights 500+ kg. Any comments and information welcome.

Lovely thing. As an exhibit to take to a show I would forget it. Ask yourself, will the public appreciate half a ton of compressor at a show? Without a certified pressure vessel you are limited to making raspberry noises with it. I would use my haulage capacity to take a larger engine.

True,weight isn't so much of an issue as I would take on the fordson major but as you see alot of space too. Also it would use up a nice set of wheels and time. Might keep it as a shed toy

With a compressor that size you could make a really impressive bubble machine - that would draw the crowds!

You could blow into plain (or coloured) water. (No bubble mixture) With one that big. It'd be impressive if done right.
