Re: Ever hear of a Jager Compressor?
Yessir thats exactly what it looks like, or same idea anyway....its a vintage machine for sure. Its actually about 100 miles from where I am, but since I live closer to the city, so he figured I'd have an easier time locating parts for it...dunno. He's looking for the vanes themselves....and I haven't seen them yet, but from what he's described to me, they're made out of some sort of carbon compound, or phenolic?....he says when they break, they are wafer like inside and kinda crumbly?, not steel, not aluminum, not fiberglass.
I just thought maybe theres some place out there, that is a graveyard for old compressors, and there would be a place to get parts for it.....like I mentioned before, my searches haven't found anything.
If I can get my hands on one of the old vanes, maybe I can source out the raw material, and fab some new ones for him....but I'd like to at least have one new one in my hand to measure.
So fellas, what is else is Jager?...I guess a beverage of sorts...one of those ones that make you feel funny? Never heard of it up here [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img].
