    A-20 Annie Compressor Tester

    I saw "Annie" A-20 at a flea market over the weekend.

    Don't know if it worked or not. They were asking only $10.00 !
    I miss you mom and dad.

    Shoulda snagged it. I've had to replace a switch or two in mine and a start cap., but I use it a lot.
    One way to outthink people is to make them think you think. They'll think you're not really thinking what you're trying to get them to think you think...........

    I've wasted $10.00 on a lot less.
    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.

    Was to fix. Boss still has his Annie.....uses it when ever.

    I spent a lot more than that on mine when I bought it new. It still works reliably. Better than this new crap they are selling.

    A real quick way to check a compressor. I also have an old robiner box tester.

    I've always wondered what the point of having one is.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    I've never worked on that stuff, other than a class in school 20 years ago.

    i have one tonight just pulled out of the garage my dad gave me from early 90's it's a annie a2, but doesn't have a gauge like that one and circuit breaker is in cord compartment, problem is it has 2 d battery's (Thats what the manual calls them)if you remove the faceplate and they are dead (these look like mini hard start kits, not d batteries, where would you get new ones? I will probably throw it away in the morning i guess. It looks cool though. Never saw my dad use it.
