My Air Tool Pro.

The handle may look like it would hurt like a (insert epithet here) but it is designed to minimize strain, and has a layer of rubberized plastic. Quite comfortable.

The cylinder is 6061 alloy (aluminum), but the rubber hose is rated to 250 psi, so i took it to 275 once. I usually just use it for 150 or so

If I ever come across the opportunity to get two old, but working, single-cylinder engines for under 100 dollars again, here's what I'd do.

Mount an engine I intend to keep running on sawhorses and tie down to the ground. Mount all tanks and hoses where required.

Couple crankshaft from one engine to the other engine I intend to salvage.

Remove valves from top of cylinder. Bore out and tap both intake and exhaust valve seats to 1" NPT threads. Install a bushing and then connect to an appropriate check valve.

Run intake check valve from a hose to a suitable air filter.

Run exhaust check valve to a manifold including a 350 PSI pop-off valve.

Voila! Instant redneck high-pressure air compressor from hell.

my compressor is homemade, not combustion driven though, it has an old electric motor connected via a belt to a Toyota land cruiser air con pump, it well kind of need a new motor this one gets weaker everytime i use it but well i cant argue with 110psi of homemade pressure.
