Default Compressor build

Pics of a compressor I’m assembling at work, a Quincy QT-10 compressor head and a IR tank. Also a custom belt guard/blower housing.

Looks good! Is the front of the guard going to be on hinges or removable for access to the belts.

This is about the 6th one of these I have done, and there’s enough room to change the belts easily from the compressor side. Slide the motor forward, and slide the belts around the front of the flywheel and out the back, super easy. The whole mess will unbolt with 4 bolts though.

As I have a Quincy QR-25, I was curious about the head and looked it up.
As usual this is 100% duty cycle head, and puts out 35cfm at 175 psi.
They are a lifetime machine.

A few more pics after some Royal Blue paint. The belt guard is also a blower housing to guide the cooling air.

It looks like you have it down to a science.
You could sell plans and a parts list.

Plans! eek!
I don't think I've ever followed plans or drawn any, before or after something was built. I build more as a seat of the pants exercise, I'm not saying it's the right way, but I build to look "right" and function the way I need it to.

Paint is something I often skip with a rebuild. Bad habit on my part. Mighty pretty.
