How to convert a gas powered air compressor to electric?
I have an old gasoline engine powered, belt driven air compressor on which the the engine no longer works. Does anyone know of a way to convert it to an electric compressor I can use in my shop? I'm guessing I could remove the engine and use an electric motor, but am not sure how to make the motor shut off when the tank reaches pressure, how many rpms the motor needs to do, or even what kind of motor I need to look for. Thanks for any help you can give me!
