Tire inflator-Air Compressor with air tank

Tire inflator made using an automtive compressor and a 1/2 horsepower electric motor. Currently it is set at 100 psi but it can be adjusted to a lower pressure. Very handy for filling auto tires, bike tires, inner tubes, rafts, etc.  I have even run my air tools with it. The electric motor alone is worth more than my asking price.    $40.00 or best offer    Call the listed cell phone number.  The item is in Grand Marais.
