Default Kellogg compressor

Got a Kellogg compressor at a auction Saturday. 115 volt. I think a 30 gallon horizontal tank. Builds pressure and holds it for a while. Tank seems solid. Slight oil leak from the pump and the pressure switch seems to not be working. But it will build 120psi fine.

Model number is B141 11 70.

Gave $100

Sounds like a good buy
New switch and check valve and you are good to go.

That's a good looking old compressor. That tank appears to be more like 60 gallon than 30, judging from the photo in your pickup bed.
What horsepower is the motor, or amperage?

And what is that cabinet lying on it's back?

Not bad for the prize in a cornflake box
What are the ratings on the motor?

The cabinet is made by Equipto. Also a auction buy.

That cabinet should prove useful in a new shop. Looks to be in fairly decent condition overall, and even better, no missing drawers.

The plan for this cabinet is to house tooling for the Gorton mill. It's a little banged up but no rust at all. Some minor sent removal needed at the bottom but other then a cleaning and removal of mouse nests it should be good to go.

I've got the cart a bit in front of the horse in the storage department but I think if I hit the ground running with organization in my shop from the start I think it will only help me in the long run.
