Air Compressor Modified To Keep From Tipping Over
“To keep that from happening, I installed larger front wheels off an old riding mower. I had to extend the compressor’s axle by slipping a 1-ft. length of pipe over each end. Then at the point where the hole was on the axle to hold the original wheel on, I drilled a hole into each pipe and inserted a pin to hold the pipe on and to provide the inner limit for the new wheel. I then drilled another hole near the end of each pipe and inserted a pin to provide the outer limit for the wheel. Riding on bigger wheels that are spaced farther apart, it’s now almost impossible to tip the compressor over.”
