I thought some of you may find this deal to be of interest, so I'm posting it on here. I can't speak for the reputation of this site because I've never bought from them, but I found this deal while looking around online:

hmmm... I tried to post a picture of it but the img tags aren't working?

well apparently here is a vid of the compressor:

lol a great how to on how not to advertise stuff :D

I had one of these (they are all basically the same) and I suggest you not to buy it. They are loud as hell, break down fast and offer low pressure and flow

for ~13 $ you can build a stirrup pump or build a fridge compressor, which will serve you much longer and better

I speak form firsthand experience when i say they are not worth the effort..... Leak, break, die, and weaken to like 50 psi max with this kind of use. They are meant for pumping up car wheels... last time i checked they don’t need to be pumped up every 5 mins...

p.s isn’t that a pump not a compressor? What’s the diff anyway?

The formula I use for "actual PSI output" has always been:

2 x (advertised PSI) / ($) .

Obviously this rule doesn't work for compressors above $100 but in this case 38 psi might not be such a bad bet...

I agree that those are a pretty cheap unit - as in not worth the money.

I would call that a Pump.

My definitions:
Pumps simply pump air into a separate device.
Compressors pump air into an integral device ("on board" tank).

Though I am sure that somewhere there is technical proof that the difference between them is that a pump that simply moves a fluid medium from one location to another and a compressor compresses a fluid medium as a way to store energy for future use.

For the purposes of Spudding though, I would call that thing a Pump and not a Compressor.

"For the the purposes of Spudding though, I would call that thing a Pump and not a Compressor."

I disagree.

My a/c compressor pumps 550 psi of compressed air into my copper gun chamber.

Any machine that compresses air is a compressor.

A 2,000 psi shock pump, a 60 psi bicycle pump, a refrigerator compressor, a/c compressor, etc. all compress air into a smaller volume.

A rose by any other name is still a rose.

Ive had one similair to that but it started to smoke after running for 2 minutes, Id take your 13 bucks and buy a bicycle pump, youll get a larger air output than that thing
